Prof Catherine Jutzeler
Prof Catherine Jutzeler is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) at ETH Zurich. Her research aims to identify causes, risk factors and biomarkers of disease progression. At the core of her work is a series of prospective and retrospective investigations that integrate genetic, biochemical and clinical assessments and medication history with both traditional epidemiological approaches and machine-learning algorithms. Prof Jutzeler’s innovative and award-winning research has already led to the discovery of novel targets for the treatment of neurological diseases, as well as new predictors of disease progression. Thanks to her expertise, she has been consulted by other researchers and pharmaceutical companies for advice related to clinical trial design, observational studies (including sample size calculations, analysis plans and data requests) and systematic reviews (including meta-analysis).
