Several researchers in the Health Economics Unit have links with health economics at Oxford University. Prof Philip Clarke has collaborated for over a decade with Prof Alastair Gray and other researchers at the Health Economic Research Centre (HERC) and Diabetes Trials Unit largely on economics aspects of type 2 diabetes and its complications. They have jointly developed a diabetes computer simulation model the UKPDS Outcomes Model that can be used by clinical and health economic researchers to extrapolate outcomes for people with diabetes based on common risk factors such blood pressure. Chris Schilling recently presented on the use of ‘big data’ techniques in health economics, and discussed scope for collaboration in the area of osteoarthritis with Helen Dakin and Peter Eibich. Kim Dalziel is collaborating with Assoc. Professor Oliver Rivero-Arias from the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit.
