5th Pharmacoepidemiology Research Network Symposium

All day

The Pharmacoepidemiology Research Network (PRN) is hosting a one-day Symposium at St Margaret's College, Dunedin, New Zealand, for researchers, healthcare providers, and others with an interest in the utilisation and safety of medicines and medical devices. 

The keynote speaker will be Dr Anders Hviid, a senior pharmacoepidemiologist who has worked on observational studies of vaccine and drug safety at Statens Serum Institut, Copenhagen, Denmark, since 2001. His research utilises the unique Danish nationwide population registries. Dr Hviid is responsible for a number of landmark studies on the putative associations between childhood immunisations and serious adverse events such as autism (see https://en.ssi.dk/news/news/2019/no-association-between-mmr-vaccine-and-autism), type 1 diabetes, and non-targeted infections. Other projects include investigations into the safety of the HPV vaccine and the safety of medicines and vaccines in pregnancy. 

Other speakers will report on recently completed pharmacoepidemiological research, discuss work in progress, introduce upcoming projects, and consider methodological issues. 

To register, please go to: https://www.otago.ac.nz/pharmacoepidemiology/news/symposium/registration/ 

To submit an abstract, please go to: https://www.otago.ac.nz/pharmacoepidemiology/news/symposium/abstracts/ 

(Closing date for abstract submission is 9 September)

Please note: Dr Hviid will also be presenting alongside academic and policy specialists from New Zealand at an AEA Symposium, The use of epidemiology in policy development, at St Margaret’s College the day before the PRN Symposium.
