Elias Mossialos is professor of health policy at the London School of Economics and Imperial College London, inaugural head of LSE’s Department of Health Policy, and founder and director of LSE Health. In 1998, he co-founded the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, a major health policy research and knowledge transfer programme. His research interests concentrate on health systems and policy, addressing questions related to funding health care, pharmaceutical policies, the impact of EU law on health care systems, cancer care and policy and incentives to develop new antibiotics. He has developed the Options Market for Antibiotics, an incentive scheme to stimulate research and development, and his recent research on cancer drugs found that one in three licensed in 2003-13 produced no overall survival benefit.
