„Dear Visitor,

 Thank you for checking us out! Our research group „Cohorts in Infectious Disease and Cancer Research“ harbors all components of data-driven health research and rests on three main pillars: (i) epidemiology and data science, ranging from dataset design, over processing pipelines for clinical phenotyping to multivariable regression and machine learning analyses, (ii) medicine, ranging from study development to patient deployment with unique research targets, and (iii) IT with database, software, and app development.

Based on this work, our group coordinates national and international cohort consortia and real-world data collections, e.g. the German National COVID-19 cohort (NAPKON), the Clinical Communication Platform of the German Cancer Consortium (CCP), The impact of colonization with MDRO in complex surgical patients (TIARA), the Lean European Open Survey on SARS-CoV-2 (LEOSS), the Impact of Prescription Quality, Infection Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship on Gut Microbiota Domination by Healthcare-Associated Pathogens (PILGRIM) consortium, the Translational Platform HIV (TP-HIV), and the NUM Clinical Epidemiology and Study Platform (NUKLEUS).

We also participate in numerous national and international cohort trials and real-world data hubs, e.g. the EU Horizon2020 Connecting European Cohorts to Increase Common and Effective Response to SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic (ORCHESTRA) effort or the DIGital Institute for Cancer Outcomes REsearch (DIGICORE).

One day, we shall have a proper homepage where we present you the many beautiful facets of our work and all the details on the many other projects we are involved in. But for now, we need to focus on our new and exciting projects and have to leave you with this microsite, where you can explore the fantastic people that carry this group forward and find means to contact them.

If you want to know more about us or start a collaboration, please contact us anytime.

Best wishes,

Janne Vehreschild“
