Global Health Research - GLOHRA Academy Series
Guest Speaker: Prof. Frank Klawonn (view profile in Research Directory)
Topic: The importance of standardizing laboratory values in global health research
The Series directs special attention towards the added value of interdisciplinary and international cooperation in global health research. Every first Tuesday of the month, speakers share insights into their research projects while focusing on research processes, methods as well as lessons learned. Following the 30-minute speaker’s presentation, the Series encourages an academic exchange between the speaker and the audience in a 30-minute Q&A session.
Steering Committee member Frank Klawonn speaks about the importance of standardizing laboratory values in medical research and in Global Health more broadly. He focuses on the numerous determinants that influence laboratory measurements and reference intervals and presents the zlog-value as a new method and an important opportunity for standardization.
