Monash Institute

Brett Doble is a Health Economist, with international experience in academic research, consulting and the pharmaceutical industry. Currently a PhD candidate and recipient of the prestigious Donald Cochrane Postgraduate Research Scholarship at Monash University’s Centre for Health Economics, his PhD investigates the economic impact of implementing genomic medicine into clinical oncology practice in Victoria, Australia. As part of a Victorian Cancer Agency grant, known as Cancer 2015, he is specifically determining what impact this approach to care will have on both the quality-of-life of patients and the various costs of treating cancer. These studies will provide evidence for both clinicians and policy makers to ensure cancer patients receive treatments that not only improve outcomes but provide society value for money. Brett is also currently expanding his knowledge of the economic impacts of genomic medicine beyond oncology as he is consulting on projects related to the implications of implementing population-wide whole genome sequencing in Australia. Brett received his B.Sc. in Biochemistry and M.Sc. in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics from McMaster University in Canada where he was a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Strategic Training Fellow for Drug Safety and Effectiveness.
