Caroline Thompson: Modernizing Metrics of Population Cancer Burden

February 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On February 17, 2023, Caroline Thompson (Epidemiology) will present “Modernizing Metrics of Population Cancer Burden” as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2022-2023 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.

Thompson‘s substantive research aims to describe and understand population-level patterns of cancer screening and diagnosis and to identify drivers of disparities in cancer-related healthcare delivery and outcomes across populations. Methodologically, she is interested in improving the valid research-use of complex, longitudinal sources of routine healthcare data (e.g., medical claims and electronic health records) and the use of quantitative bias analysis to evaluate the impact of suspected sources of systematic error in observational research.
