Ian Reynolds manages Pew’s drug spending research initiative, an effort that seeks to understand the underlying drivers of rising drug costs and identify policy options to better manage spending on these products, which currently outpace the increasing costs of all other parts of the health care sector. Reynolds’ team also looks for ways to help to ensure that patients have access to lifesaving treatments. Previously, he was an officer in Pew’s health group, where he led planning and development of new initiatives and coordinated the launch of projects.
Before joining Pew, Reynolds worked at Boston-based Community Catalyst to advance state and federal policies that improve conflict-of-interest standards in medicine and promote evidence-based practices. He also served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Turkmenistan, focusing on community health.
Reynolds holds a bachelor’s degree in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Michigan and a master’s in public health from Boston University.
