Research

My main areas of interest are the following:

  • Comparative effectiveness of cancer-related interventions using claims databases. This work is conducted in collaboration with investigators from the Dana Farber Cancer Insititute in Boston. Funding: NIH P01-CA134294.
  • Evaluation of dynamic strategies of treatment in prostate cancer. This work is conducted in collaboration with investigators from the University of California, San Francisco. Funding: NIH P01-CA134294 and CaPSURE Scholarship 2012-2013.
  • Genetic epidemiology of colorectal cancer. This work is conducted in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle and the Channing Laboratory (Brigham and Women’s Hospital) in Boston.
  • Design and analysis of clinical trials and observational clinical research. I collaborate in the design and analysis of clinical trials of the GEMCAD group. I also collaborate with other research centers: Institute for Research in Biomedicine (Barcelona), Fundación Instituto Valenciano de Oncologia (Valencia), Hospital Clinic (Barcelona), Hospital del Mar (Barcelona), Queen Mary University (London) and University of Munich.
