Data Scientist and Statistician

To ensure best value of our research data we employ a data scientist and statistician who supports our researchers in all dimensions towards high-end statistical approaches in their projects.

Medical Writer

Most of the medical research performed in the world is published in English. The Inselspital’s Anaesthesiology Department employs a native English-speaking medical editor who helps its primarily German-speaking researchers meet the requirements of scientific publishers.

Study Nurses

Our study nurses work closely with investigators to prepare for and carry out research on a broad range of topics. In studies involving patients they coordinate the collection and recording of patient data, for example by screening patients, providing information about study goals and procedures, obtaining consent for study participation, administering questionnaires, maintaining equipment, drawing blood, and recording measurements.
