Potential Uses of Miniature Spectrometers to Mitigate the Health Crisis in Developing Countries
Speaker: William Fisher, WilmerHale Professor of Intellectual Property Law and Faculty Director, Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society

Recent advances in several unrelated fields -- miniature mass spectrometry; artificial intelligence; and drug databases – may soon radically increase the ability of public-health workers to assess the chemical composition of pharmaceutical products rapidly, cheaply, and “in the field.” This potential, in turn, offers a variety of ways in which vaccines and medicines could be distributed more efficiently to poor patients in developing countries. William Fisher will discuss these possibilities and a pilot project in Namibia designed to test them.
