This week our guest is the Director of the Law and Health Care Program and Jacob A. France Professor of Health Care Law at the University of Maryland, Diane Hoffman. Diane has directed a groundbreaking, interdisciplinary team of researchers exploring the regulation of the human microbiome market, probiotics, and microbiota transplants. She was lead author on the 2017 Science article “Improving Regulation of Microbiota Transplants,” and recently published work in Gut Microbes, JLME, and the AJLM.

Diane has written influential articles in many subfields of health law, but today we focus on her work on the biome. The science is fascinating but the regulatory system is complex. Diane’s leadership in ELSI working groups researching these areas makes her the go-to source for ideas on the various options regulatory options (including by the FDA and FTC) and their potential impact on the growth of this new and rapidly evolving science.
