[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Lifesciences: Ethics : The development of biotechnology often raises ethical and social issues with which lifescience businesses must grapple. Students interested in lifesciences should consider taking 1 or more courses focusing on these challenges. This course introduces students to decision-making in connection with product development and clinical research for new biotechnology products.
General course Description:
This course focuses on the bioscience industry (biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device, genomics, and vaccine) with an emphasis on the ethical and social challenges of running these companies. Additionally, it will introduce students to the processes and decision-making with regard to new biotechnology product development, clinical research (both in developed and developing countries), responsibilities to human research subjects, regulatory hurdles, market timing decisions, interactions with customer physicians, product safety, data publication, direct-to-consumer marketing of prescription drugs, and product litigation. Students in the class will be representative of those who work on this industry sector and, hence, will come from the schools of business, medicine (clinical and bench), bio-engineering, and chemical engineering. Law students are also invited to enroll, scheduling permitted. This is a 2-unit course that meets once a week.
