​This week’s episode features a welcome return from Rachel Sachs, Associate Professor of Law at the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. Rachel’s primary research interests lie at the intersection of patent law and health law, with a particular focus on problems of innovation and access and the ways in which law exacerbates or ameliorates these problems. She is a prolific scholar who has a knack for identifying cutting-edge research. We focus on her most recent publication, Delinking Reimbursement. We discuss various aspects of the drug price phenomenon, attempting to find some explanations for our current predicament, while exploring some possible solutions.
