Professor Terry Young
Chair of Healthcare
Welcome to my website.....
I joined Brunel as Professor
of Healthcare Systems after a 16½-year career in industry, which
started in broadband research and led in the end to healthcare strategy.
My initial research, after a PhD in laser
spectroscopy, lay in finite element modelling of photonic devices
and optical circuits. Later, with project and line management, my
experience broadened to include business development and corporate
technology strategy, mainly in healthcare.
In 2001 I joined Brunel
University and I have focused on healthcare since then, winning
more than £13M in Research Council grants. The largest of these,
three other universities (Birmingham,
and looks at the value of technology to care delivery. Another recent
involved four other universities (Cambridge,
and explored the use of simulation and modelling in service provision.
My recent publications address healthcare delivery in terms of services,
systems and technology, including commercial and investment decisions,
uptake and adoption.
