Hello, I’m Ron Handels, a post-doc researcher at the Alzheimer Centrum Limburg at Maastricht University (Netherlands) and associated to the Karolinska Institutet (Sweden). I’m working on health-economic topics in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.
My current research focusses on timely access to care (ACTIFcare project) the cost-effectiveness of advanced diagnostics for Alzheimer’s disease and the simulation of costs and consequences of Alzheimer’s disease. Here you can find more information on my projects. Furthermore, I’m running a business that facilitates researchers in patient recruitment (www.onderzoekmachine.nl).
