Research Interests for Henry G. Grabowski

Research Interests: Economics of Innovation, Governmental Regulation of Business, and Economics of Pharmaceutical Industry

Professor Grabowski specializes in the investigation of economics in the pharmaceutical industry, government regulation of business, and the economics of innovation. His specific interests within these fields include intellectual property and generic competition issues, the effects of government policy actions, and the costs and returns to pharmaceutical R&D. He has been publishing research papers for over four decades, from his earlier work, “The Effects of Regulatory Policy on the Incentives to Innovate: An International Comparative Analysis” with John Vernon and Lacy Glenn Thomas, to his more recent projects including, “Impact of Economic, Regulatory and Patent Policies on Innovation in Cancer Chemoprevention” with Jeffrey L. Moe. His latest research studies include other such titles as, “Mergers and Alliances in Pharmaceuticals: Effects on Innovation and R&D Productivity” with Margaret Kyle; “Should the Patent System for New Medicines Be Abolished?” with J.A. DiMasi; and several others. Professor Grabowski has served as an advisor and consultant to various organizations, offering his ideas and insights gained through his extensive investigations to the National Trade Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, the Office of Technology Assessment, the Federal Trade Commission, and the General Accounting Office. His latest project involved an analysis for the FTC concerning public policy, competition and investment in the “Next Generation of Biologics.”
