Epidemiology and Biometry
Head of Division:
Welcome to the webpage of the Division of Epidemiology and Biometry within the Faculty of Medicine.
In memoriam: Lloyd R. Sutherland passed away on August 1st, 2019, following a long period of severe disease. He will live on as inspiration. Thank you Lloyd, it was the perfect time to live, to work, to research, to study in Calgary. Your openness, international outlook, generosity of mind and broad scope of interests along with high standards, strong focus and appreciativeness were wonderful to experience and witness. I wish there was more of this around..

"To the pure clinician, the clinical research published in general medical journals is no longer really understandable, because the design and the analyses have become too complicated. To the pure methodologist, it may not be evident how particular findings fit with background clinical and basic science knowledge. .....If we want to preserve and reinforce proper judgements about the theory and practice of medicine—including the use of ‘big data’ and the use of ‘personalised medicine’—we need people with both types of knowledge in one head"
"Zwei Dinge sind zu unserer Arbeit nötig: Unermüdliche Ausdauer und die Bereitschaft, etwas, in das man viel Zeit und Arbeit gesteckt hat, wieder wegzuwerfen"
