Emily McFadden

MA (Cantab), MSc, PhD (Cantab)


Departmental Lecturer and Senior Statistical Epidemiologist

  • Fellow of Kellogg College

My current research interests include the use of large routine databases in medical research and research design.

I am the coordinator (with deputy coordinator Sarah Lay-Flurrie) for the Big Data Epidemiology module for the Evidence Based Healthcare Programme at the Department for Continuing Education in collaboration with the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine and I teach on other selected modules.  From 2012 to 2016 I coordinated the Introduction to Study Design and Research Methods module with Clare Bankhead. I lead the Evidence Based Medicine theme for year 4 medical students. I also supervise DPhil and MSc students.

In 2014 I became a statistical member of the Independent Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) that advises the MHRA on research with databases such as the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD).
