EPID 765 Methods and Issues in Pharmacoepidemiology Syllabus
Research activities

Dr. Stürmer has a dual focus in epidemiologic methods and clinical epidemiology. His research in epidemiologic methods includes the development of more efficient matching strategies in genetic epidemiology; measurement error correction methods in case-control studies; the value of propensity scores for pharmacoepidemiologic studies; and the novel integration of ideas from measurement error correction and propensity score analysis to improve control for confounding by medication-use choices using data from validation studies. His research in clinical epidemiology covers many topics, including nephro- and cardiovascular toxicity of paracetamol and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; chemoprevention of colorectal cancer and dementia with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; determinants of antibiotic resistance; and hormone therapy, pain, and sub-clinical inflammation in osteoarthritis.
