Research project: Value of pharmaceutical innovation


My research focuses on the process of pharmaceutical innovation with the aim of investigating the role played by different public and private actors. 


I am a PhD student at Kingston University and I collaborate in research projects in Health Economics with the Centre for Economic and International Studies (CEIS-EEHTA) of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" where I obtained a Master Degree in Economics in 2015. Previously, I studied at "Roma Tre" University gaining a Bachelor Degree in Political Economy and at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona as part of the Erasmus programme. I also held a placement at Kingston University London as a winner of the Erasmus + Traineeship. Recently I attended a short course in "Decision Analytic Modelling for Economic Evaluation" provided by the University of Glasgow and the "Building a Budget Impact Model: Budget Impact Analysis Training" course organized by the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR). My research focuses on health economics and I am interested in the study of public policies applied to the health sector.
