Anneke Damen is a clinical epidemiologist specialized in systematic reviews and meta-analysis of prognostic models.

She studied biomedical sciences at the Radboudumc and specialized in epidemiology and pathobiology. She did several internships at the Radboudumc, the National Expert and Training Centre for Breast Cancer Screening, and at Sanquin blood supply.

In 2014, Anneke started working as a PhD student at the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, University Medical Center Utrecht, under supervision of Prof. Carl Moons, Prof. Rob Scholten, Dr. Lotty Hooft, and Dr. Thomas Debray. Her project focused on systematic reviews and meta-analyses of prediction model studies. She combined her PhD project with the postgraduate master Clinical Epidemiology. Furthermore, she worked as affiliated researcher for Cochrane Netherlands. Here she was active as a teacher on several courses and worked on projects for the Belgian health care Knowledge centre and Zorginstituut Nederland.

Anneke currently works as an assistant professor for Cochrane Netherlands and is the coordinator of the Cochrane Prognosis Methods Group.
