This day-long interdisciplinary symposium, co-sponsored by the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute and the Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®), addresses the significant and pressing questions of law and policy that will inevitably arise from the adoption of technological and data-driven innovation in medicine. Endeavors such as biohacking, artificial intelligence, consumer genetics, and citizen science initiatives offer the promise of collaboration and accessibility while raising legitimate legal and ethical concerns about ownership, justice, and the law’s ability to keep up with innovation. Legal, technological, and medical experts from across the country will explore the scientific, ethical, and legal implications of some contemporary examples of do-it-yourself and do-it-together medicine.
