In September, UW School of Pharmacy CHOICE alum Jonathan D. Campbell, PhD, will become Senior Vice President for Health Economics at the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER). Having collaborated with ICER closely over the past five years, Campbell will oversee the growth of ICER’s health economics team and lead in the future innovation of ICER’s value assessment methodology. In addition, he will continue to build ICER’s relationships with health economists around the country and with health technology assessment (HTA) agencies around the world.
Campbell, who graduated from the SOP’s CHOICE (formerly PORPP) PhD training program, says his education at UW helped inspire and influence his professional path. “I received education and mentorship from some of the world’s best researchers in the field of health economics and outcomes research,” he said. “I was encouraged to think deeply about health economics topics that matter, but to also not lose sight of the bigger picture. This ICER appointment would not have been possible without UW.”
Since graduating in 2007, Campbell has remained an active research collaborator with UW faculty and continues to lean on his UW mentors. “UW is a key academic collaborator to ICER in the economic modeling space,” he noted. “I look forward to the opportunity to work closely with UW faculty and researchers in my new leadership role at ICER.”
Sean D. Sullivan, professor and dean of the School of Pharmacy, served as Campbell’s primary mentor during his UW tenure and isn’t surprised by his former student’s success. “Everyone in the School of Pharmacy family is excited for Jon and his new role,” he said. “In addition to being an exemplary professional and world-class researcher, Jon is a natural leader, both passionate and compassionate. We’re thrilled for him.”
Campbell also received a MS in biostatistics, from the University of Washington. He earned bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and chemistry at St. Olaf College, where he graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa.
