Principal Investigator

Brandon Bellows received his PharmD and MS from the University of Utah, where he also completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in health economics and outcomes research. His research is focused on using computer simulations to estimate the clinical and cost effectiveness of healthcare interventions, particularly in hypertension and cardiovascular disease prevention, and inform implementation decisions. Dr. Bellows’ is currently supported by a career development award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to compare the feasibility and cost effectiveness of implementing the intensive systolic blood pressure treatment goals from SPRINT at the local level in four distinct health systems.
