The Gender Dimension in Epidemiology
Next in our video interview series, we have Sanne Peters who is a Research Fellow in Epidemiology at University of Oxford (UK). Sanne Peters will give a short introduction why a gender dimension is important in the field of Epidemiology and how it is best incorporated in concrete research. Her main field of interest is how risk factors of cardiovascular disease differ between women and men. The discovery that diabetes appears to affect women and men differently for example, depends on the publication of sex dis-aggregated data – which now made it possible to really understand the reasons behind those different effects and act upon them.
