About Joshua Brown
Joshua Brown, Pharm.D., Ph.D., M.S., joined the department of pharmaceutical outcomes and policy as an assistant professor in 2016. He received his Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Science degrees at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas, before pursuing a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical outcomes and policy at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy. During his doctoral training, Brown worked as the UK-Humana-Pfizer Research Fellow in a unique partnership between academic, managed care and pharmaceutical stakeholders. In his doctoral dissertation, he studied the utilization of vena cava filters for prevention of pulmonary embolism, focusing on the high utilization and low quality of care surrounding these devices, as well as the implementation of interventions to increase that quality of care. He has received funding from the PhRMA Foundation and the Food and Drug Administration to conduct a study on the comparative effectiveness and safety of oral anticoagulants. In 2017, Brown was named a Claude D. Pepper Junior Scholar and will conduct research in geriatric pharmacoepidemiology by linking existing clinical trial data to administrative claims. Brown has also received funding from the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacists Association to investigate treatment patterns and effectiveness in cancer-associated venous thromboembolism. Brown was also named a TEDMED Research Scholar in 2017 and has received a Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis in both 2016 and 2017.
