PhD thesis – A Model-based approach to assess harms and benefits of different screening strategies for cervical and colorectal cancer

Steffie Naber from the Department of Public Health in Rotterdam successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled: “Reducing Harms and Increasing Benefits of Screening for Cervical Cancer and Colorectal Cancer – A Model-based Approach” on April 19.

Several studies are included in which mathematical modeling has been used to assess the harms, benefits, and harm-benefit ratio of different screening strategies for the early detection of cervical cancer and colorectal cancer.

The project was launched in September 2015 and will continue to August 2020.

This project has received funding from the European Unionʼs Horizon2020 Programme under grant agreement no 634753
