Press/Media: Press / Media


On today’s episode of the Law Down Under Podcast, we interview Dr Marco Rizzi, an expert in health law, therapeutic goods and medical devices. Marco is Associate Professor and Deputy Head of the University of Western Australia Law School, where he teaches Torts, Health Law and Policy, and Risk Regulation. He has a PhD, and Master’s Degrees in Civil and Comparative Law from the European University Institute and the University of Pisa. We discuss Marco’s career before diving into the regulation of therapeutic goods and medical devices in Australia. We consider how the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) – Australia’s main regulatory authority – performs its role in approving and regulating therapeutic goods and medical devices. We also consider the mass litigation surrounding some of these products.  I hope you enjoy this episode with Dr Marco Rizzi.
