Event for expert public only
Professor Lars W. Andersen
Berlin is home to many epidemiologists, but there aren’t many local platforms for us to connect, learn new methods, and discuss current issues in the field. The Berlin Epidemiological Methods Colloquium (BEMC) seeks to fill this gap via interactive monthly BEMC Talks and BEMC JClub.
Lars W. Andersen is a physician from Denmark currently in residency. He has been working with the Center for Resuscitation Science since January 2012 where he started as a research student. In 2013, he finished medical school in Aarhus, Denmark and started a 3-year Ph.D. project as a collaboration between Aarhus University and the Center for Resuscitation Science. He graduated from the Ph.D. program in October 2016 and has since worked with the group as an external collaborator. Lars received his M.P.H. from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in March 2016 and is a member of the Advanced Life Support Task Force at ILCOR since July 2016. Lars has been involved in the design and execution of multiple phase II clinical trials and has a special interest in large epidemiological studies and the statistical methods involved. He has primarily published within the fields of cardiac surgery, sepsis, and cardiac arrest. Lars is a reviewer for multiple international journals including, among others, JAMA, CHEST and Intensive Care Medicine and is an editorial board member at Resuscitation.
He will talk about time-related biases and the use of propensity scores to address those.
