Philip Clarke is Director of the Health Economics Research Centre at the University of Oxford, UK. Until recently, he was the Director of the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Melbourne and continues to maintain a fractional appointment with the Centre and strong links with the CEPAR research team based there.

He has contributed to health economic policy debates in Australia, particularly around the pricing of generic pharmaceuticals and more recently the need for better statistics on outcomes and cost in the Australian system. His research interests include developing methods to value the benefits of improving access to health care, health inequalities and the use of simulation models in health economic evaluation. Philip has been involved in the development of the UKPDS Outcomes Model, a health economic simulation model for type 2 diabetes. He has also undertaken policy relevant research for the World Bank, OECD, AusAID and the Department of Health. He has over 80 peer-reviewed publications and has recently contributed to books on costeffectiveness analysis and cost-benefit analysis published by Oxford University Press.
