The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) has announced that its founder, Steve Pearson, MD, will step down from his role as president later this year. ICER’s COO Sarah Edmond will take over the position as president, while Pearson will move to an advisory position for the organization, which performs value-assessments on therapeutics.

According to Pearson, “When I founded ICER, I envisioned a laboratory where people could work together to bring evidence to light in service of building a health care system they could be proud of. A laboratory where good science, honesty, integrity, and mutual respect could combine to break down walls and bring all participants in the health care system together to do the hard work of wrestling with uncertainty and weighing how best to align pricing with value in support of better access for patients.”
