Random-effect modelling for longitudinal and correlated data as well as a course on basic and advanced smoothing techniques have been past subjects on which a Boerhaave course has been organised. Keep yourself informed with the agenda of future courses in this area on the Boerhaave and MGC webpage.

Extra-Curricular activities

In collaboration with the department of Geriatrics we train high school students and biology teachers how to organize and writing an assignment or profile paper (profielwerkstuk stappenplan). For this opportunity the Molecular Epidemiology made a movie as a training programme. Watch this!
