P. Alison Paprica

Assistant Professor, Institute for Health Policy, Management & Evaluation, University of Toronto
For several decades, my career has focused on identifying and capitalizing on shared interests between academic institutions, government departments and agencies, and commercial organizations. Over time, my research focus has shifted from my trained discipline of biophysical chemistry to health sciences, population health and social sciences. Most recently, my focus has been on infrastructure for data-intensive health research, including artificial intelligence (AI), and on an expanded approach to knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) which includes patient and public engagement in research. I am also interested in leadership and management of large-scale research as a topic in its own right.

My main research interests are:
• The engagement of public and patients in all stages of research
• Infrastructure for data-intensive health research, including health AI and machine learning
• KTE to support the use of evidence in policy development and planning
• Structures and systems to support large academic research initiatives
