Outbreak: Developing New Medical Products for Epidemics, A lecture by Peter Hutt Thursday, January 15, 2015, 12:30 PM Hauser Hall 102, 1575 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
The recent outbreak of Ebola has called attention to the substantial difficulties associated with developing and testing new products for time-sensitive epidemics. What are the legal, ethical, and economic barriers to getting essential treatments and preventative measures from the lab into the hands of patients – and how can they be overcome?
Please join the Petrie-Flom Center for a discussion of these issues by Peter Barton Hutt, Partner at Covington & Burling, LLP, and Lecturer on Law at HLS. Rachel Sachs, Petrie-Flom Center Academic Fellow, will respond.
