Dr. Carlson's current research interests and work to date has primarily focused on the intersection of three areas: 1) genomics and emerging technologies in the field of personalized medicine, 2) uncertainty both in our decision-making processes and as the concept applies to the application of medical technologies in "real world" settings (i.e. outside of clinical trials) including comparative effectiveness research, and 3) economic and policy options to address these uncertainties as we seek to improve our healthcare system and the health of our population.
