We’re excited to introduce and welcome Efthimi Parasidis to our blogging community as a regular contributor.
Efthimi is a member of the Center for Health Law Studies and Assistant Professor at Saint Louis University. His scholarship examines regulation of medical products and human subjects research, the interplay between health law and intellectual property, and how health information technology can inform public health policy. He is currently serving as a co-principal investigator with researchers at the National Institutes of Health on a study that is analyzing compensation policies for research-related injuries. He is a member of the Law & Policy Workgroup of Missouri Health Connection, the entity responsible for creating Missouri’s health information exchange, and consults for the American College of Physicians on conflicts of interest in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. As a Fulbright Fellow, Efthimi researched legal and ethical issues related to medical informed consent policies and practices in Greece.
