Congratulations to Miguel-Angel Mayer for his appointment as a member of the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences Expert Working Group

Miguel-Angel Mayer, member of IBI group of the GRIB, has been invited to join the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) XIII Expert Working Group. CIOMS is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization established jointly by the World Health Organisation and UNESCO in 1949. CIOMS mission is to advance public health through guidance on health research including ethics, medical product development and safety. There is increasing interest in the use of Real-World data (RWD) to support regulatory decision making across products life cycle. Electronic health records, claims data, prescription data, and patient registries are some of the most important resources of RWD. Real-world evidence (RWE) is the clinical evidence about the usage and potential benefits or risks of a medical product derived from an analysis of RWD. CIOMS has proposed the development of a consensus report and recommendations for the use of RWD and RWE in regulatory decision-making related to biopharmaceutical products. Miguel-Angel Mayer said: "I am honoured to join CIOMS and work on this RWD/RWE consensus report and the opportunity to collaborate with the most important world experts in this field".

Congratulations to Judith Pérez Granado for winning the Barcelona Science Slam

Last 22nd of February, the 7th Edition of the Barcelona Science Slam took place. For those who don't know, a science slam is a scientific communication contest where scientists explain their research projects in 5 minutes in an engaging, fun and clear way. PhD students and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to join the experience and bring their research closer to the public. Judith Pérez Granado, PhD student at the Integrative Biomedical Informatics Group of GRIB, presented her PhD thesis project and was the winner of this Slam. She said: "To me, it was a pleasure to present my science in a fun and simple way so it could reach everyone. It made me even see my research from another perspective. To anyone that would like to participate, I would encourage him/her to do so. It is a great experience!"​. Here you are the video of the presentation.
