Contents: There is considerable debate about the social returns to biomedical research and innovation. The primary purpose of this course is to discuss econometric methods for evaluating the overall impact of biomedical innovation — much of which is embodied in new products and procedures — on longevity and health. We will consider analyses based upon a variety of research designs, medical innovation measures, health outcome measures, and populations. We will also analyze the impact of various public policies on biomedical innovation.
