Event Details

UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain

Health Economics at UCL

Friday 18 November 2016

Venue: UCL Wilkins Main Quad Pavilion

This half-day event is open to researchers from all faculties across UCL who work on health economics in a wide variety of areas, including psychiatry, statistical science, global health, applied health research and clinical trials and methodology.

Event purpose

UCL has significant strength in health economic research, however, key researchers at UCL that work in this area are often unfamiliar with other scientists who work in different faculties and departments. This is a missed opportunity therefore this event aims to bring this diverse range of researchers together in order to network, share expertise across UCL and encourage new research collaborations such as new grant applications and joint publications.

Event format

As you will see from the draft programme below, the first half of the event will consist of presentations from key departments working within health economics. The second half of the event will be a round table session chaired by Professor Dame Anne Johnson.

The event will be followed by a networking lunch.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at researchers (PhD student and above) working in health economics at UCL.

Populations & Lifelong Health Domain - Health Economics Theme

The UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain brings together researchers and practitioners across UCL and beyond, to explore the factors that determine health and disease in populations, and to develop, test, and measure the impact of interventions and service improvement to enhance the health and wellbeing of the public, and reduce inequalities in health status.

Sitting within the Populations & Lifelong Health Domain is the Health Economics theme-

Researchers across UCL conduct a wide range of health economics research, and have particular expertise in:

  • economic evaluations within clinical trials
  • economic evaluation using decision analytic modelling and discrete event simulation
  • econometric methods for health research
  • policy design and evaluation
  • health insurance and health care financing
  • resource allocation
  • early childhood interventions
  • measurement of health and health care inequalities.

Research is undertaken across a range of disease areas and in the UK and globally.
