drs. L.M. (Linda M.) Slingerland-Peelen Associate Professor
- Department of Epidemiology
- Julius Center Research Program Methodology
After obtaining my PhD in Medical Informatics on modeling dynamics of disease (University of Amsterdam, 2009), I focused my research on risk prediction in clinical epidemiology.
I am appointed in the Methodology research programme at the Julius Center, working on methods for development, validation and implementation of prediction models in complex settings. I am particularly interested in modeling care trajectories, repeated measurements, patient monitoring, and incorporating treatment in prediction models.
With these methods, I contribute to applications in various clinical domains, for example the prediction of complications in diabetes patients (CTMM, DIAMANT).
I am also appointed as methodological staff member at the Division of Anesthesiology, Intensive Care, and Emergency Medicine, where I supervise MSc and PhD students and participate as a methodological sparring partner in the research groups Heart at Risk, Brain at Risk , and Patient monitoring.
The complexity of data and decision strategies in acute and perioperative care require complex methodology and creative solutions, which makes this an attractive field for a methodologist like me.
Also I enjoy teaching epidemiology and related disciplines in various programs of the Graduate School of Life Sciences at Utrecht University, and supervising MSc students (both Medicine and Epidemiology) in their research projects.
