On Thursday, 6 August 2015, at 11AM Eastern Time (Washington, DC), KEI will
host a seminar on drug pricing featuring Professor Aidan Hollis, economics
professor at the University of Calgary.

The seminar will take place at the KEI office in Dupont Circle, and up to
10 persons can be participate remotely, via a video Google Hangout link.
There is also an option to participate via telephone. If there is a
capacity issue for the remote participation by video, we will give priority
to academics, government officials, NGOs working on drug pricing, and third
party payers.

After the seminar, the discussion will be posted online via YouTube and
will be available to the public for research and reference purposes.

Professor Hollis will begin with a short presentation of his recent paper
that argues for consideration of average R&D costs in drug price
negotiation, for drugs with very high ICERs and where the company justifies
high prices with high costs.

If you would like to participate, either through GoogleHangouts or in
persion at our DC office, please fill out this Google Poll (

Elizabeth Rajasingh via elizabeth.rajasingh [at]keionline.org with any
additional questions. She will send out additional information regarding
the seminar and instructions about joining the seminar on the morning of
the event.
