The Basu Lab @Stanford

Welcome! Our group conducts research on public health policy and planning, using methods from the fields of operations research and epidemiology.

We seek to address social and economic determinants of health, as well as the challenges faced by public health and primary care delivery systems, by analyzing data from large-scale community-based studies through novel computer modeling and statistical techniques.

We focus specifically on programs that address common cardiovascular disease risk factors, such as elevated blood pressure and type II diabetes, which profoundly affect low-income populations around the world.
