Professor Harry de Koning, MD

The project will be coordinated by Professor Harry de Koning. He is Professor of Public Health & screening evaluation at the Department of Public Health at Erasmus MC. His major scientific contributions are in the areas of (1) designing, running and evaluating large-scale multidisciplinary population-based randomised controlled screening trials to establish the efficacy of screening, (2) evaluating active international screening programmes and tests to establish effectiveness and (3) guiding public health policies using predictions of favourable and unfavourable effects and the cost of screening, based on micro-simulation modelling of the natural history of disease, and cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analyses.

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
