Martijn Schuemie, PhD
Research Fellow, Epidemiology Analytics
Janssen Research and Development
Dr. Martijn Schuemie received his Master’s degree in Economics with a major in Information Management. He completed his PhD in Computer Science on the topic of human-computer interaction in virtual reality systems for phobia treatment. In the past, he was employed as an assistant professor at the Erasmus University Medical Center of Rotterdam, where he started by researching the application of text-mining the scientific literature in support of molecular biology. He later moved to pharmacoepidemiology, and was one of the lead investigators in the EU-ADR project tasked with building a prototype drug safety signal detection system using population-level observational data. In 2012 he received a one-year fellowship of the FDA and became an active OMOP investigator.
In 2013 Martijn joined Janssen Research and Development, where he continued his research in OMOP and later in OHDSI (Observational Health Data Science Informatics). He was an honorary assistant professor at Hong Kong University in 2014 and 2015, and it currently a (virtually) visiting scholar at the Biostatistics department at UCLA. He developed the White Rabbit, Rabbit in a Hat, and Usagi tools, and co-led the Book of OHDSI. Currently leading the OHDSI HADES (Health Analytics Data-to-Evidence Suite) workgroup and the OHDSI Population-Level Estimation workgroup, Martijn’s main interests are in method development and evaluation.
