Dr. Regier is a Scientist within Cancer Control Research, BC Cancer and the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control (ARCC), and an Assistant Professor, School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia.

Dr. Regier’s research focuses on improving methods to enumerate preference-based utility, with applications to genetic and genomic technologies and the ‘value of genomic knowledge’ i.e. how genes play a role in our personal lives and how publics value and trade between benefits and risks when making decisions to undergo genomic testing. He incorporates this person-centred evidence into economic models that answer questions of value for money.
