Anna Pellat, MD, MSc

I have been working on transparency and levels of evidence of research in pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Following my initial work, I am now focusing on the role of observational studies and evaluating how it challenges the current framework of evidence in medical research.

In parallel, I am also associated with the ESMO real-world and digital health working group where I work on several projects regarding real-world evidence in oncology. I am co-leading one of the projects.

Finally, as a medical doctor, I also work part-time in the digestive oncology department of the Cochin hospital in Paris, where I will then pursue my academic career at the end of my PhD.
