Mohsen Sadatsafavi

Dr. Mohsen Sadatsafavi received his MD degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences, his MHSc degree in Epidemiology from the University of British Columbia (UBC), and his PhD degree in Health Outcomes Research from UBC. He leads the Respiratory Evaluation Sciences Program at UBC, a comprehensive program of outcomes research in chronic respiratory diseases.

RESP consists of three inter-related and synergistic themes of 1) burden of disease studies, 2) comparative effectiveness research, 3) economic evaluation of respiratory health technologies. Sadatsafavi’s work in the first two themes involves sophisticated analysis of clinical and administrative health databases. The third theme involves decision-analytic modeling and computer simulation to predict the cost-effectiveness of existing and emerging respiratory health technologies.

In parallel, Sadatsafavi investigates the use of novel epidemiological and economics methods in my research area. His methodological research has resulted in the contributions to the methodologies for estimating economic and social value of research and quantifying the clinical utility and population-level impact of personalized medicine interventions.
