SPOTLIGHT

Jessica Jamieson ’97

Jessica Jamieson '97 is the global head of Hematology IP for Shire. “It is exceedingly rewarding to start supporting a project when it is in the early stages, when you don’t know whether the lead compounds are going to actually work, and to see that project develop over time to the point where it is eventually an approved drug,” she said. “Often with very serious diseases, especially with hemophilia, these drugs can greatly improve the patients’ lives, and that's something that is incredibly rewarding to see.”Read more

  • 2016 Sidley Austin Distinguish Lecture on Big Data and Policy with Prof. Jack Balkin

    Big data is all the rage these days. Employing increasingly sophisticated algorithms and artificial intelligence technologies, businesses and governments are enthusiastically using big data to solve problems and create value. At the same time, individuals are increasingly worried about how massive data collection and analysis will impact their privacy, and whether companies and governments will use it fairly. Do we need ground rules to encourage the many benefits, and reduce the risks, of our new algorithmic society? If so, can government set such rules consistent with the First Amendment? 
    Jack Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, will explore these questions on Thursday, Oct. 27, at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in the Sidley Austin Distinguish Lecture on Big Data and Policy titled “The Three Laws of Robotics in the Age of Big Data.” Read more
