My Story: Project 69

In October 2017, a group of six Phd students set out with the ambitious goal of writing a publishable paper in 9 days. The group consisted of both experienced and novel students from various research-groups.

My Story: Statistical Practice in Epidemiology using R

June 2017 I attended the course “Statistical practice in Epidemiology using R”. The course was held in Tartu, Estonia, which is roughly a 2.5 hour bus ride from Tallinn airport. Tartu is a beautiful and almost mediaeval town and sort of the Estonian equivalent to Oxford. Moreover, Estonia will most likely become one of the most interesting countries in the world for epidemiology as they have excellent patient registries and have genotyped a high share of the population.
