About the O’Neill Institute

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University was established in 2007 through the generous philanthropy of Linda and Timothy O’Neill to respond to the need for innovative solutions to the most pressing national and international health concerns. Housed at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington D.C., the O’Neill Institute reflects the importance of public and private law in health policy analysis. The O’Neill Institute draws upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the School of Medicine, School of Nursing & Health Studies, the Public Policy Institute, and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.
