About Sam Weidner

I am a senior at Tufts University and I recently completed my Laidlaw research project. My project was titled "Curing Hepatitis C, Treating AIDS: A comparative analysis of regulation and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry". I used a combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis to conduct a comparison of the development of drugs to treat Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS, with the goal of identifying what factors led to the lengthy delay of effective Hepatitis C drugs. The Laidlaw program gave me the opportunity to undertake archival work in Boston and London and to share my research with a growing group of multidisciplinary and dedicated students.
