Laurent ROCHE

I first graduated in Mathematics in 2004 (Université Claude Bernard, Lyon, France) then taught mathematics in high schools. In 2008, I obtained a Master’s degree in applied mathematics (statistics, informatics, and numerical methods) and, in 2009, integrated the Department of Biostatistics (Hospices Civils de Lyon, France). In this Department, I am involved in various research projects on various diseases (observational studies, clinical trials, etc.). However, my main and favorite research topic is the development of statistical methodologies in cancer epidemiology, mostly survival modeling, especially that the Department is regularly issuing French cancer epidemiological statistics (incidence, mortality, survival, and net survival). I was lately involved in SUDCAN, a study on net survival from 15 cancers in six Latin European Countries. Number of publications: 20.
