Interdisciplinary research

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.
