Professor John Ioannidis, M.D, D.Sc. from Stanford University will share his insights regarding the generation of medical evidence and present his research leading to his comprehensive methodological critique, which has made him one of the most cited and influential scientists worldwide. Together with the participants of this exclusive workshop, he will highlight the problems and shortcomings of the traditional methods, discuss modern alternatives which present themselves in light of the new possibilities to generate and use vast amounts of data, and debate the chances and challenges of their integration and transformation into modern health care.
Invited scholars chair an exclusive three-hour seminar, allowing students and young researchers to engage in a face-to-face encounter with the invited expert. The participants are given insights into scientific materials and will discuss the expert’s findings and publications in a small and intensive workshop environment. To ensure an in-depth exchange, participant numbers are limited and allocated on the basis of a short motivational letter.
