MARK SUCHMAN

My research interests center on the relationship between law, innovation and entrepreneurship, particularly in the information technology, nanotechnology, and healthcare sectors. I am currently writing a book on the role of law firms and venture capital funds in fostering high-technology entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, and I am midway through a multi-year project on the organizational, professional and legal challenges surrounding new information technologies in health care.
