Dr Dan Howdon
I am a Senior Research Fellow in the Academic Unit of Health Economics within the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences. I joined AUHE in May 2018 after two years as a Postdoc in Health Economics at the University of Groningen. Prior to this, I held various teaching and research fellow positions at University College London and the University of York.
- Lead, Applied Health Econometrics Group
I am currently involved with several projects, including:
- ACTIVATE: evaluation of new aptamer-based diagnostics for various clinical purposes.
- ATLANTIS: evaluation of the use of low-dose amitriptyline for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
- BioPAsSPoRT: evaluation of a new renal diagnostic, aimed at allowing earlier and more accurate diagnosis of delayed graft function and improvement in clinical intervention, risk stratification and tailoring of individual follow-up.
- LP-MAESTRO: evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of particular configurations of liaison psychiatry service for specified target populations.
I am also undertaking research examining the prediction of prognosis in advanced incurable cancer using EQ-5D components, the impact of unmodelled heterogeneity in economic evaluation, and the relevance of the degree of budgetary impact in determining relevant decision rules in economic evaluation.
