Ting Cai


DPhil Candidate

I am reading a DPhil in Primary Care Health Sciences, specialising in Medical Statistics, Health Data Sciences and Evidence-Based Medicine. My research interest is mainly in pharmacoepidemiology, including evaluation and prediction of efficacy and safety of medications by quantitative analysis of clinical trial data and real-world electronic healthcare records.    

My DPhil project STRATIFY: Statins is to better understand the safety of statins for prevention of cardiovascular diseases to support potential stratified treatment strategy and personalised clinical decision-making. This project consists of advanced meta-analyses of clinical trial data, causal inference cohort study using large healthcare databases and development of risk prediction models. My DPhil study is funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF)

Before my DPhil study, I obtained a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology & Medical Statistics and a Bachelor of Sciences in Preventive Medicine. I am also a programmer using R for data management and analysis.
