Ioannis Kokkoris, Professor of Competition Law and Economics; Dean for International, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London, spoke to Bloomberg about the battle Illumina Inc. faces to save its $8 billion bid for cancer-test provider Grail from a European Union veto ahead of a Friday deadline to allay antitrust concerns.
