Working Papers on Medical Advances

Our case-histories (which we started writing started in 2014) reflect (and helped produce) ideas in my Note on Productive Knowledge (and in this Critical Review essay).

An HBS elective, Lessons from Transformational Medical Advances (LTMA) which I taught in the Spring of 2021 connected the case histories, propositions about productive knowledge, and the Critical Review essay.
