Maarten J. IJzerman is professor and head of Cancer Health Services Research in the University of Melbourne and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and a part-time professor in the University of Twente's TechMed Centre. HisĀ international work is focussed on the health economics and health services implications of personalised medicine, including drug treatment sequencing and the use of complex genomic sequencing. He develops and applies new methods for value assessment of medical technologies, in particular molecular diagnostics for precision oncology. He is a pioneer in the field of early Health Technology Assessment, supporting the clinical translation of medical innovation by modelling their health and economic impact in an early stage of development.Ā 

Before moving to Melbourne in 2018, he was the founding chair of theĀ Department of Health Technology and Services Research (2007-2015), director of education for Health Sciences program (2007-2011), acting director of the MIRA institute for Biomedical Engineering and Technical Medicine (2013-2014) and vice-dean for Health & Biomedical Technology in the Faculty of Science and Technology (2015-2017). Before then, he worked as a visiting scholar in different academic centres in the USA and Canada and was the scientific director of Roessingh Research and Development (2000-2007).Ā 

Maarten has supervised many MSc and PhD students in several UT degree programs (TM, HS, BME and IEM) and is a mentorĀ to early-to-mid career academics globally.Ā
