Member Spotlight: Joshua E. Perry

Joshua E. Perry is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Business Law and Ethics at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in Bloomington, where he also serves as research coordinator in the Center for the Business of Life Sciences. His interdisciplinary research explores legal, ethical and public policy issues in the life sciences industry, commercialization of health care, and business of medicine. He teaches courses on business ethics, critical thinking, and the legal environment of business to both undergraduates and MBA students. Professor Perry also serves as an adjunct assistant professor in the Alden March Bioethics Institute at Albany Medical College in New York.

A graduate of the joint law-divinity program at Vanderbilt University, he was previously on faculty at the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he taught medical ethics in the medical school, legal ethics in the law school, and served as a clinical ethicist in both the adult and children's hospitals. After approximately 4½ years at Vanderbilt, he was recruited in 2009 to his current position at Indiana University.

The author of over twenty articles and essays, Professor Perry’s interdisciplinary work has appeared in a variety of law reviews and peer-reviewed journals across the fields of business, medicine, law, and ethics. His research has won a number of awards, and his teaching has been recognized twice with the Indiana University Trustees’ Teaching Award. In 2013 Professor Perry was selected by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business to receive the “Distinguished Junior Faculty Award” for outstanding early career achievement.

He says that his stint as a guest editor for the Winter 2014 symposium issue of JLME exploring the topic of “Buying and Selling Health Care” was among the most rewarding of his career. “I am very proud of this collection and particularly grateful to executive director Ted Hutchinson for making it possible and co-guest symposium editor Larry Churchill for making it happen (and to both for always keeping it fun).”

Professor Perry’s hope is that this collection of articles will be a catalyst for future constructive dialogue among patients, physicians, and policymakers, as well as additional analysis by fellow scholars working at interdisciplinary crossroads in schools of business, medicine, law, and public health – both in the U.S. and beyond.
