  • Julius Center Research Program Cardiovascular Epidemiology

M.C.J.M. Sturkenboom



Miriam Sturkenboom is pharmacoepidemiologist. She is professor in Observational Data Analysis and worked until 2017 at the department of Medical Informatics of the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands. Mid 2017 she transferred to the Global Health Group at the Julius Center at University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands. She has a PhD from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in Groningen (cum laude), a pharmacy degree from the same University and a Master in Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health. She is past president of the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology. She serves as expert to EMA, FDA, WHO and many other organizations

Her research interests focus on transforming real world data into real world evidence on drug use, effectiveness and safety in vulnerable populations (children, pregnancy and elderly). Her research focuses on the creation of international ecosystems that allow for big data mining, pooling and analysis to learn about the use and effects of drugs after marketing. These infrastructures have been tested and used as prototypes in many distributed networks in projects funded by the European Commission, the Innovative Medicines Initiative, the European Medicines Agency, ECDC, and also privately funded projects that she coordinate(d/s). She was coordinator of the IMI funded ADVANCE public private collaboration, aiming to establish a tested system for the monitoring of benefits and risks of vaccines. She is coordinator of the IMI-funded ConcepTION project, building an ecosystem to assess drugs safety in pregnancy and lactation. She is member of the WHO Global Advisory Committee for Vaccine Saftey. In terms of quantitative research outputs: she supervises/d more than 50 PhD students, has more than 400 peer reviewed papers in the area of pharmacovigilance, pharmacoepidemiology and medical informatics and an h-index of 74.
