Research activities in Health Economics at WMS
Health economists form a vital part of many research teams within the Warwick Medical School, the University of Warwick, other universities in the UK and in international collaborations. The economic information ultimately enables policy makers to decide on the cost-effectiveness of treatements.
High quality research
Health Economists at Warwick Medical School produce high quality research outputs and develop new methodologies. We can only showcase a very limited selection of the projects our researchers are working on. You can find a complete list of our projects here.

Mathematical & Economic Modelling for Vaccination and Immunisation Evaluation (MEMVIE)
This project investigates whether any change in the immunization programme is cost-effective; that is, whether the value placed on health benefits or improvements in social welfare that ensue are less than the incremental cost associated with the change in programme.
