Symposium on Pandemic Flu

Via the Professor comes word of a Symposium being organized by MH guest-blogger extraordinaire Frank Pasquale entitled "Preparing for a Pharmaceutical Response to Pandemic Influenza".  From the web site:

Seton Hall Law School’s Center for Health and Pharmaceutical Law and the Seton Hall Law Review will be hosting a symposium on October 23-24, 2008, to examine the legal, ethical, and public policy issues related to developing a pharmaceutical response to an influenza pandemic. Panels will explore issues related to the development and approval of vaccines and antiviral drugs, both before and during a pandemic; the allocation of vaccines and antiviral drugs in situations of scarcity; pricing issues; and liability and compensation for drug-related injuries. There will be a special emphasis on issues related to international equity [Well of course there will be if Frank is helping to put it together! -- Ed.]

[ . . . ]

Persons interested in participating as a panelist at the symposium should submit a CV and a 200-word abstract of their presentation to Julie Sauer, Symposium Editor, by April 15, 2008. Julie Sauer may be reached at (201) 739-7310 / sauerjul@shu.edu. Prospective panelists should indicate whether they would be interested in submitting a paper based on their presentation for publication in the Seton Hall Law Review. Contributions are welcome from scholars and practitioners in all disciplines.

We here at MH Blog particularly appreciate that last sentence! Further details are available on the Symposium web site.
