Matthew Maciejewski, PhD

Matt Maciejewski, PhD is a Research Career Scientist and Director of the Health Economics and Policy Unit in the Center of Innovation to Accelerate Discovery and Practice Transformation (ADAPT) at the Durham VA Medical Center. In addition, he is a Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences. Matt also holds Adjunct Professor appointments in the Schools of Public Health and Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


Initially, I chose to work in VA because there seemed to be great potential that research findings could improve Veteran health and health care because we work within the VA health system and can communicate directly with leaders of clinical operations.  Over time, I came to appreciate the tremendous data assets that are available on millions of people over many years, which enables VA researchers to conduct analyses that simply aren’t possible in any other health system in the United States.  Finally, the strong and supportive community of VA researchers locally and nationally make it very easy to stay in VA.
