Advancing the evidence base for care and policy in priority health areas

Professor John Simes will lead a multi-disciplinary research team that has received $10.6 million to improve the evidence base that informs care and policy in priority health areas. The program will improve health care and health policy though advances in clinical trials research and better methods for combining trial evidence with individual patient factors (including novel biomarkers and patient preferences).

The world-renowned team will tackle major health care questions in priority health areas where advances will have substantial health impacts: in particular in cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and neonatal diseases.

The program brings together a unique multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, epidemiologists, trialists, biostatisticians, and health economists and national and international collaborative networks of investigators to reduce death and serious disability.
