Coronado Conference I Papers

Scientific Evidence and Public Policy

In March 2003, distinguished scientists, philosophers of science, judges and policy experts presented papers and discussed the use and misuse of scientific evidence in public policy, and the implications of the 1993 Supreme Court's Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. decision. The papers from the conference, along with other scholarly work on these topics, have been published in a July 2005 special supplement to the American Journal of Public Health.
