Research Summary

Dr. Schwartz's research on public health policy, history, and ethics focuses on vaccines and vaccination programs, decision-making in public health policy, and the structure and function of scientific expert advice to government. His general research interest is in the ways in which evidence is interpreted, evaluated, and translated into regulation and policy in medicine and public health. Among his current research projects is an examination of how policy-makers, regulators, physicians, and patients evaluate and respond to the risks, benefits, and costs of vaccines, pharmaceuticals, and other medical technologies.
