Personal profile



Dr Varinder Jeet is a Research Fellow at the Macquarie University Centre for the Health Economy (MUCHE). Before joining MUCHE, Dr Jeet was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) from 2010 to 2018 and a Research Officer at Mater Medical Research Institute Brisbane from 2009-2010.


Varinder’s expertise lies in clinical/medical and health economics research. Varinder has contributed to numerous research projects focussing on diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy during his research career. He generated and analysed data for two phase-1 prostate cancer clinical trials and discovered new mechanisms of cancer resistance and novel therapeutic approaches for advanced stages of cancer. He also discovered innovative techniques and biomarker panels for detecting cancer at the early and late stages of disease progression. As part of the high performing team at MUCHE, Varinder is currently contributing to Health Technology Assessments of new medicines and medical technologies.    

Varinder’s research has featured in high-quality scholarly periodicals such as European Journal of Health Economics, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Clinical Chemistry, Cancers, Scientific Reports, Cancer and Metastasis Reviews, Endocrine-Related Cancer, and others. He has successfully supervised two PhD students and is currently supervising a PhD student, delivered lectures to university students, and acted as a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals and NHMRC project grants. As a member of the Australian Society for Medical Research (ASMR) organising committee, Varinder helped in organising the ASMR conference annual dinner 2016. He has also served on career counselling, conference organisation and OH&S committees. In addition, Varinder has been the recipient of prestigious research grants, travel grants and other awards.   

Varinder completed the Master of Health Economics degree to bridge the gap between clinical research and Health Technology Assessment (HTA). His broad knowledge of medical research areas and a solid educational background help him to understand the intricate processes of disease pathophysiology and ways to implement that knowledge in HTA procedures. Varinder is interested in economic modelling for therapeutic interventions and vaccines, genetic testing/clinical genomics, cancer studies, and equity and public policy research.
