The Medical Practice Evaluation Center (MPEC) team, led by Kenneth Freedberg, MD, MSc, and Ingrid Bassett, MD, MPH, is a multidisciplinary team internationally recognized in the evaluation of clinical outcomes, costs, and cost-effectiveness for preventing, managing, and treating HIV/AIDS as well as other diseases.
The MPEC team collaborates with research teams in Botswana, Brazil, Côte d’Ivoire, France, India, Mozambique, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Uganda, and Zimbabwe, as well as investigators from across the United States.
MPEC is dedicated to improving clinical outcomes, increasing value in health policy, and informing global public health through research, collaboration, and education.
Simulation Modeling and Decision Science
The Modeling and Decision Science Pillar at MPEC includes a multidisciplinary, international team of physicians, programmers, data analysts, decision scientists, and others who use simulation models and decision science methods to address questions of value in global health care, with a focus on HIV and its comorbidities.
The team builds computer models that project the clinical and economic impact of different policies or guidelines for health care and disease prevention. Results of modeling analyses are used to inform clinical guidelines.
The Implementation Science Pillar at MPEC unites a multidisciplinary team of researchers to address important public health and equity topics in the US and around the globe, notably HIV, TB, COVID, sexual health, and non-communicable diseases.
Utilizing a portfolio of applied research methodologies–such as clinical trials, cohort studies, mixed-methods observational studies, and clinical registries–and rich, diverse collaborations with international medical and research institutions, as well as across the MGB system, we produce real-world research spanning implementation science, translational research, biomedical learning, and population health policy change.
