The New Frontier of Health Innovation: Navigating the Regulatory Landscape

March 15, 2016

DePaul’s Journal of Health Care Law, the Jaharis Health Law Institute along with the Center for Intellectual Property (CIPLIT©), Law, and Technology, and the DePaul Journal of Art, Technology, and Intellectual Property welcome students, faculty, and practitioners to attend their annual Spring Symposium. At the forefront of the health care sector, medical practitioners, technological savants, and other professionals are working together to use technological advances to improve upon traditional practices. Their work has already had revolutionary effects in certain areas of medicine and many believe that we are only at the tip of the iceberg. However in order to succeed, health care innovators must navigate through an increasingly complex set of statutory and administrative rules. The Spring Symposium will feature the insights of individuals who overcame these hurdles and the legal practitioners that aided their efforts.

DePaul’s 2016 health law symposium featured practitioners, technological experts and other professionals working together in the health care sector and using technological advances to improve upon traditional practices. “The New Frontier of Health Innovation: Navigating the Regulatory Landscape” offered insights from individuals navigating an increasingly complex set of statutory and administrative rules and the legal practitioners that aid their efforts.

Dr. Neelum Aggarwal and Dima Elissa, MBA presented a session on considerations around the NIH and FDA policies impacting sex and gender in healthcare.  From drugs to devices, new guidelines are forcing researchers and entrepreneurs to refactor approaches to development practices to include gender and sex in clinical trials an product design as a way to improve the practice of precision medicine to deliver better patient or customer outcomes.
