Michael Maia Schlussel
BSc, MSc, PhD
- UK EQUATOR Centre Fellow
Clinical Trials Statistician gripped by methodological quality and ethics in medical research
I graduated with a BSc in Nutrition from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2003, followed by an MSc (2006) and PhD (2010) at the same institution; both focused on Epidemiology with a strong component of Statistics.
In 2013, I moved to the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (University of Oxford) to work as a postdoctoral research assistant in the INTERGROWTH-21st project.
My background as a researcher includes collaborations with several universities and research centres, focusing mainly on the data analysis of large population-based epidemiological studies to investigate Nutritional Epidemiology; Maternal and Child Health; Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD); and determinants of chronic diseases.
I joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM) in May 2014 to work as a medical statistican within the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU). My current work is mainly focused on Randomised Clinical Trials of non-pharmacological interventions.
I am also involved with systematic literature reviews, development and evaluation of prognostic models, and methodological research to improve medical investigation. As a fellow of the UK EQUATOR Centre, I teach in a number of courses offered by The EQUATOR Network and CSM.
2012 Selected to participate in the VI Latin American Nutrition Leadership Programme by the Latin American Nutrition Society (SLAN).
