Previous Events


The Regulatory Science Doctoral Student Symposium

Feb 4, 2019  l  8:30am-2:15pm
Cotting House, Harvard Business School

The Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science is holding a student symposium on February 4, 2019. The goal of this event is to provide students with a chance to present their research in a friendly, supportive environment and to receive feedback from faculty and colleagues who are also interested in regulatory science-related questions. We encourage students to join us from diverse fields including economics, bioethics, healthcare policy, public policy, drug/device regulatory policy, pharmaceutical R&D, patent law, biomedical research, and more. Although this is a student-focused event, we are open to considering post-docs, fellows, and other trainees who fill out the application form, pending availability of additional presentation slots. If you are not interested in presenting but would like to attend the event, please mark your calendar and join us on February 4!
