THETA Rounds: TBA, Ed Wilson, PhD
THETA Collaborative is pleased to invite Ed Wilson, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Health Economics, University of East Anglia; a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Public Health, University of Cambridge.

Ed Wilson joined the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR) in 2013 as Senior Research Associate in Health Economics. He trained in economics at the University of York before gaining a PhD in health economics from the University of East Anglia. He has expertise in decision analytic modelling, economic evaluation alongside clinical trials, option appraisal and programme budgeting and marginal analysis (PBMA). He has applied these in a variety of disease areas including obesity, stroke, dementia, lupus, IVF, erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and ulcerative colitis. Ed’s methodological research is in the area of value of information analysis ¬- a quantitative approach to setting research priorities making use of uncertainty in the results of economic evaluations to quantify the expected return on investment in further research.

My major interest is efficient research design, specifically using Value of Information analysis to predict the return on investment in alternative clinical trial designs. I also have expertise in decision analytic modelling and economic evaluation alongside clinical trials.

Since 2008 THETA has been hosting a lecture series THETA Rounds and inviting world experts to address various issues related to Health Technology Assessment, Clinical Research and Health Policy and Ethics fields.
