CLOSED: The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH BRC) are seeking applications from students wishing to undertake a PhD with an emphasis on translational research and child health.
This free afternoon event aims to give an introduction for PhD students, early and mid career translational researchers in using health economic analysis. This will cover the basic principles of health economics, how you can effectively plan research and grants to include health economic analysis. This day will be supported by case studies from around UCL and London to show how this has happened in both clinical and non clinical settings.
