Big Pharma: The Business of Innovation and Regulation with Luba Greenwood

Pharmaceutical companies have come under increasing scrutiny for large increases in drug prices over the past years. Some have blamed investors and M&A for pressuring companies to raise prices. Others have blamed a broken patent and regulatory framework that stymies effective competition.

In this talk, Luba Greenwood will explore the role of incentives, regulation, investment, and the patent system in driving the business model of modern pharma, and the ultimate impact of this system on patients.
