Associate Professor Ramon Luengo-Fernandez
MA MSc DPhil
Ramón Luengo-Fernandez joined the Health Economics Research Centre in January 2004 having completed his MSc in Health Economics at the University of York in 2003. In October 2005, Ramón took up a Researcher Development award from the UK Department of Health. As part of this award, in June 2009, Ramón successfully completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford on the healthcare costs and health outcomes associated with stroke. Shortly after, Ramón was awarded an ESRC/MRC/NIHR Early career fellowship in economics of health to publish and further develop the work undertaken as part of his DPhil thesis. During his time in HERC Ramon has also been involved in a number of other projects evaluating the economic burden of cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and dementia/Alzheimer’s disease in the UK and in the European Union.
