Biography

  • Former chartered accountant, primary school teacher and cafe owner.
  • Proud older worker, wife and mother of four.
  • Keen hillwalker - working my way through the Munros - 114 and counting ... 
  • Completed MSc Health Technology Assessment at HEHTA, University of Glasgow in 2015 and PhD in 2021.
  • My PhD focused on the evaluation of molecular pathology tests in development and I am continuing this work in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with BioClavis Limited.

Research interests

My principal research interest is in early health technology assessment (early HTA).  This involves the use of methods familiar in HTA to explore the potential value to both developers and payers, of technologies in development or at early stages of adoption.  In collaboration with Associate Professor Janneke Grutters of Radboud University Medical Centre in the Netherlands, I am establising and will co-chair a special interest group in Early HTA at HTAi.  This group will include stakeholders across the technology innovation space and will focus on defining terminology and best practice as well as developing methods, capacity and awareness of this important area of HTA.  In Sept 2022, we will launch our new Early HTA and Decision Analytic Modelling module of our MSc HTA.  This module is also available to non-students as Continuing Professional Development and will equip you to undertake an economic evaluation of a technology in development and apply appropriate qualitative techniques.  For more information please contact Miriam.Yentumi@glasgow.ac.uk

My other main research interest is in methodology alongside natural experiments. Together with colleagues Jim Lewsey, Danny McKay, Terry Quinn and Franceso Manca we have recently started work on our methodoligcal and applied grant, funded by the Chief Scientist Office.  This grant will evaluate two important policy developments in Scotland, police carriage of Naloxone and thrombectomy, as well as developing some methodological guidance around interrupted time series analysis and synthetic controls.
