About the Center for Medical Research Methodology

In 2007, the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences established the Center for Medical Research Methodology with funding from the Novo Nordisk Foundation. With professor Thomas Mandrup-Poulsen as initial principal investigator, the Center for Medical Research Methodology focused on coordinated research and teaching within medical research methodology, especially to enhance undergraduate and postgraduate skills and to stimulate interest in educational and career opportunities for health sciences candidates with respect to drug development and testing, and with special emphasis on clinical and translational research.

As of 2014, the Center for Medical Research Methodology is led by external Associate Professor Simon Francis Thomsen, with continued focus on teaching and translational research within medical research methodology.

The specific goals of the Center for Medical Research Methodology are:

  • To strengthen undergraduate and postgraduate research methodology training at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
  • To perform research in the area of medical research methodology.
  • To perform translational basic and clinical research in collaboration with other parts of academia and industry. 

In order to support these goals we are involved in teaching and development of several courses within medical research methodology.
