Sarah Elisabeth Curi

Brandeis University

I am an Associate Professor of the Practice at Brandeis University and a Visiting Lecturer at Wellesley College.  I currently teach seminars on American Health Care: Law & Policy and Special Topics in Public Health: U.S. History & Policy. I have also taught Patient Autonomy:  Law, Medicine & Ethics.  Last Fall, I began teaching Constitutional Law:  Civil Rights, Civil Liberties & Justice at Wellesley and will teach Public Health in America:  Politics & Policy this summer.

My students have repeatedly recognized me during the Celebration of Teaching at Brandeis Day, for making a difference in the lives of students and as a Career Hero for making a significant contribution to students’ professional or career objectives.

I have also taught Business Law at Babson and Health Care Ethics at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (now MCPHS).

In addition to teaching, for nearly 30 years, I’ve worked in-house as a health care lawyer for several hospitals, health care providers, academic research and development organizations, and health tech/bio tech companies.  Most recently, I worked for a Google subsidiary and for a CRISPR company.

I am a graduate of Wellesley, BC Law, and the Harvard School of Public Health.
