Mussab joined the Cancer Health Services Research (CHSR) unit as a PhD student in December 2021 under the supervision of Professor Maarten IJzerman. His research will be addressing the translation gap of complex genomic testing through liquid biopsy into cancer health services. The project will support both identification and prioritisation of the value proposition for using liquid biopsies in cancer management.
Before joining CHSR, Mussab has been working as Research Associate with the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE) at the University of Technology Sydney. On that role, he has worked on multiple projects aimed at provision of external evaluation of Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) and other health technology related submissions for the Australian Department of Health. Mussab has also worked for the Centre for Applied Health Economics as a Senior Research Assistant with the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) team.
Mussab obtained his bachelor’s degree of Pharmacy (Hons) at the University of Medical Sciences & Technology (UMST) in Sudan, and his Master of Public Health Science with health economics at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, through the prestigious Swedish Institute Study Scholarship program. Mussab is specialised in economic evaluation and HTA, particularly cost-effectiveness analysis and decision-analytic modelling.
Outside work, Mussab enjoys listening to music, watching movies, and catching-up with friends.
