Brett is a health economist at the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC), University of Oxford. He received his PhD in Health Economics from the Centre for Health Economics, Monash University where he was the recipient of the Donald Cochrane Research Scholarship. He received his BSc in Biochemistry and MSc in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics from McMaster University where he was a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Strategic Training Fellow for Drug Safety and Effectiveness.
Prior to joining HERC, Brett was a Research Associate in Health Economics at the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research, University of Cambridge and still holds a Visiting Researcher position in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care. Brett also has an affiliation with the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia where he has consulted on projects related to the economic impacts of implementing whole genome sequencing into routine clinical practice.
His main research interests are related to the economics of genomic medicine, with a particular interest in its applications in oncology and monogenic diseases. He has completed a number of economic evaluations of health technologies using within-trial analyses and decision analytic modelling and has an interest in further developing economic methods for assessing diagnostic tests within the genomics context. Brett also has an interest in health outcomes research, specifically the use of ‘mapping’ to generate health state utility values.
