On March 29, the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School celebrated its first decade and kicked off the next with a conference that focused on the future of health law and policy.
The day-long celebration featured a series of panel discussions on major trends, developments, and open questions in the fields of health law policy, biotechnology, and bioethics.
The event was directed by Harvard Law School ProfessorI. Glenn Cohen ’03 and Holly Fernandez Lynch, faculty director and executive director of the Petrie-Flom Center. Alan Weil ’89, Editor-in-Chief ofHealth Affairs, delivered the keynote address. Conference panelists included many health law experts who are prominent alumni of the Petrie-Flom fellowship program.
Since its founding ten years ago, the Center has grown from a small think tank designed to respond to the need for legal scholarship at the intersection of medicine, science, and law, to a leading research program that boasts a highly regarded post-doctoral fellowship program and a variety of sponsored research projects addressing research regulation and ethics, the health of professional football players, and more. The Center also hosts a prodigious number of conferences, workshops, and lectures, and a range of independent scholarship, including an academic journal on bioethics, a series of books on health law policy, and a prominent “Bill of Health” blog.
