Call for Papers: Regulating Innovation in Healthcare

Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law and the Nova Law Review seek submissions for a symposium on October 14, 2016.  Regulating Innovation in Healthcare: Protecting the Public or Stifling Progress? will address the legality, advisability, and effects of the regulation of healthcare, defined broadly.  The topic is especially timely this year because 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of one of the major scholarly developments giving rise to the current regulation of human subjects research in the United States.  While the symposium is intended to discuss far more than regulation of human subjects research, the publication of Dr. Henry K. Beecher’s 1966 article in The New England Journal of Medicine provides a useful jumping-off point for exploring the regulation of innovation throughout the healthcare system.

Submit materials to Alison Barbiero, Editor-in-Chief at by May 15, 2016.

Conference: Assessing the Viability of FDA’s Biosimilar Pathway

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School will sponsor the event Assessing the Viability of FDA’s Biosimilar Pathway on February 18, 2016 at noon at Pound Hall in Room 100.

“The 2010 passage of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act was intended to create a pathway for the approval of biosimilar drugs, to bring to market less expensive versions of innovators’ biologic therapeutics in the same way the Hatch-Waxman Act has worked so well for FDA approval of generic small-molecule drugs. But the Act has been mired in a host of statutory, regulatory, and scientific complication and delays, and five years later, the FDA has approved just one biosimilar product.

This panel will bring together experts from legal practice, industry, and academia to discuss each of these issues and to recommend ways in which the agency and industry can move forward.”
