The Food and Drug Law Institute will host their 2020 Food and Drug Law Symposium on November 13, 2020 in Washington, D.C. The theme of the symposium is: This Teachable Moment: How COVID-19 Provides Lessons from FDA’s Past and Present That Will Benefit Its Future Preparedness.
The Food and Drug Law Institute solicits legal scholarship on the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how past and present lessons provide guidance for the future.
The Past: How do the polio, swine flu, SARS, and other past health and other crises aid in our understanding of how FDA and other federal agencies should navigate pandemics?
The Present and Future: What are the immediate lessons of the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how can they help inform future action? Would legislative or regulatory changes help FDA and other agencies respond to future pandemics?
Abstracts may be submitted through the Conference website. Submissions are due by June 15, 2020.
