About Joshua Brown
Joshua Brown joined the Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy as an assistant professor in 2016. He has experience in clinical pharmacy, health economics and outcomes research, and pharmacoepidemiology across academic, pharmaceutical industry, and managed care. His past and ongoing clinical interests have been in the cardiovascular and hematology/oncology therapeutic areas including comparative effectiveness and safety research with a focus on anticoagulation and quality of care in thrombotic conditions such as atrial fibrillation, venous thromboembolism, and cancer. His current research program and collaborations focus on research methods for pharmacoepidemiologic and pharmacoeconomic generic and biosimilar evaluations, developing real-world evidence for drug-drug interactions, and drug repurposing studies (e.g. aging and Parkinson’s Disease). In 2017, Brown was named a Claude D. Pepper Junior Scholar to conduct translational research in geriatric pharmacoepidemiology and healthy aging. His academic work has been funded by the NIH, FDA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the PhRMA Foundation in addition to contracts with pharmaceutical industry. Josh has published over 80 research articles and holds several editorial positions with high impact specialty journals in pharmacy and cardiovascular diseases and is actively involved in AMCP, ISPE, and ISPOR scientific societies. Dr. Brown was awarded as the AMCP Foundation’s “New Practitioner” for his early career contributions to managed care pharmacy.
