I began my career as faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. In 2021, I joined UCSD as an Associate Professor with tenure. My research has focused on evaluating clinical and economic outcomes of oral anticoagulant agents and studying pharmaceutical pricing. I have published over 70 peer-reviewed manuscripts with more than 50 as first or senior author. Some of these articles have been published in top-tier journals, including JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine, JAMA Internal Medicine, and Health Affairs. My research has been featured in the main media outlets, including New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, Forbes, BBC, ABC, CNBC, or Bloomberg.
I was tenured and awarded my first R01 as PI at the age of 30. I am the recipient of the 2021 Academy Health Alice S. Hersh Emerging Leader Award, the 2019 Seema S. Sonnad Emerging Leader in Managed Care Research Award, and the 2019 Rho Chi Society Outstanding Scholarly Contribution Award. In 2018, I was named one of the “30 under 30” young leaders in healthcare research by Forbes Magazine. I am a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
I go by Inma, and I sign my papers as Inmaculada Hernandez (I am from Spain, where everyone has two last names; Hernandez is my first last name and Delso my second last name). My office is in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Building (9500 Gilman Dr | Room 2244).
