  2. CSB Seminar: Practical Insights: Target Trial Emulation in Estimating Causal Effects of Stroke-related Interventions from Observational Data

    The randomized trial is the preferred research design for determining the effectiveness of interventions in health research. However, such trials can be (too) expensive, ethically problematic, logistically impractical, or not fast enough. In situations where conducting a randomized trial is not feasible, researchers may turn to observational data to address similar questions.

    In this interactive lunchtime seminar, Jess Rohmann will focus on practical elements of applying this framework using an example of rolling out a new mobile stroke unit service in a fictitious city. You will learn how to design a well-defined intervention and will be walked through how to develop a protocol for a target trial emulation study.

    About the speaker: Jess Rohmann is an early career researcher in neuroepidemiology with strong interests in improving scientific practice, reforming research assessment, and creating a more constructive research culture. In her research and teaching activities, she seeks to promote the application of rigorous, modern methods in observational medical research. She formerly was Head of Epidemiology at the CSB and spent the last year working as the Scientific Strategic Advisor to the Scientific Director of the Max Delbrück Center in Berlin. In December 2023, Jess returned to the Charité working on the “Peerspectives” project at the Institute of Public Health.

  3. BUA Postdoc Academy: Die eigene Persönlichkeit als Postdoc entwickeln – Stärken finden, stärken und fördern
    Location: ZEWK TU Berlin, Raum FH 1019

    Persönlichkeit wird auch in der Forschungskultur immer mehr gefordert. Postdocs sollen in ihrer Karriere ein Bild über ihre Stärken entwickeln, um damit ihre Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten und Erfolgsaussichten zu bewerten. Persönlichkeitsentwicklung ermöglicht es, Stärken zu stärken, Schwächen anzugehen und ein tiefergehendes Verständnis von sich selbst und anderen zu entwickeln und kann sich damit positiv auf Karriere und Lebenszufriedenheit auswirken.

  13. CSB Seminar: Artificial Intelligence for Decision Support in the Stroke Unit Setting: Predicting Atrial Fibrillation, Pneumonia and Outcome

    This presentation offers an overview of recent advancements in data warehouse-based predictive modeling relevant for the stroke unit setting and with a particular focus on predicting pneumonia, patient outcomes, and atrial fibrillation. We have integrated multimodal data routinely collected during standard stroke workup, particularly focusing on monitoring data that affords automated analyses with high feasibility. Our research has resulted in the creation of robust algorithms to anticipate outcomes and complications post-stroke. Heart rate variability was identified as a key driver of our models‘ performance in all use cases. These machine learning approaches demonstrate improved performance when benchmarked against established clinical scores and highlight a path forward to real-time, prospective validation and intervention in a next step.

    Dr. Maximilian Schöls is a physician in training at the Department of Neurology at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and scientifically active in the Computational Neurology working group of PD Dr. Meisel. He is particularly interested in scalable approaches to optimize stroke care.

    Alexander Nelde, M. Sc. is a physicist with a master’s degree from TU Berlin, specialized in complex systems and nonlinear dynamics.  Within the working group Computational Neurology, his scientific focus is on the development of multimodal prediction models and signal analysis.
