From 11th-15th of June I attended the course “Introduction to multi-level modeling” at Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute at Columbia University (EPIC). The summer institute provides courses on a wide range of epidemiological topics for those interested in public health.
On June 10 – June 16, 2018, I was lucky to attend the second course week of the annual summer school hosted by BiostatEpi, at a castle in northern Italy. My two select classes were ‘Longitudinal Data Analysis’ and ‘Joint Modelling of Longitudinal and Survival Data’. The stay was made possible through funding by EPINOR.
This years summer school took place in June at fantastic Senja. The topic of the year was research communication and critical review. Take a look at the pictures and be sure to join next year!
25th May the steering committee welcomed EPINORs International Advisory Board, Marie Reilley (Karolinska institut), Henrik Toft Sørensen (University in Aarhus), Anne Tjønneland (Danish Cancer Society), Elsebeth Lynge (Copenhagen University) and Paolo Vineis (Imperial College, London). The purpose was to learn what our international advisers had to say about EPINOR today and in the future. Professor Paolo Vineis also gave us an introduction to his perspective on Epidemiology in the future (picture).
