Research Interests: Pharmacoepidemiology; Pharmacoeconomics; Drug policy
Currently, Dr. Mamdani oversees the Applied Health Research Centre (AHRC), which is an academic research organization (ARO) housing scientific and operational expertise to design and conduct clinical research, including observational research and multicentre clinical trials. Dr. Mamdani also is a co-Principal Investigator on two large government-funded grants focused on drug safety, effectiveness, and policy. The first grant, the Ontario Drug Policy Research Network, is focused on providing research findings relevant to decision-makers in a rapid manner and brings together leading drug research experts at five medical schools across Ontario and key decision-makers at the provincial government level. The work involved includes pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomics research. This work builds on Dr. Mamdani’s past working relationship with drug policy decision-makers. The second grant, The Canadian Drug Safety and Effectiveness Research Network (CDSERN) brings together researchers from four different provinces and regulators from Health Canada to conduct and interpret pharmacoepidemiological research.
