The Respiratory Evaluation Sciences Program (RESP) is a comprehensive epidemiology, health outcomes, and health economics program focused on chronic respiratory diseases (namely asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD]).
We are hosted within Collaboration for Outcomes Research and Evaluation, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, UBC. Our group has diverse expertise in using clinical data, real-world 'big' data, and computer simulations (disease modeling) techniques to evaluate the real-world effectiveness of health technologies and their 'value for money' potential. Our research has continuously been supported through multiple grants from CIHR and other agencies.
