Section of Clinical Epidemiology
Clinical epidemiologist, PhD


Matilde Winther-Jensen is a clinical epidemiologist in the Center for Clinical Research and Prevention. Matilde has a master's degree in biology and a Ph.D. in epidemiology of post-resuscitation care of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients. Her research has focused on these patients and differences in use of treatment and effects of treatment.

Matilde has worked with national health registers as well as data from clinical studies and thus has a broad experience with data management, statistics and epidemiology.

As a clinical epidemiologist Matilde uses her research competence to help clinicians put their ideas into research projects.
