Postdoc researcher
PhD 

Karin Schölin Bywall is a postdoc researcher at CRB. She explores patients' preferences and perspectives on individualized treatment using prediction algorithms and digital health applications. The research is part of the NordForsk funded Personalized Medicine in RA by combining genomics, biomarkers, clinical and patient-derived data from the Nordic countries (NORA) project that will develop ways to tailor treatment for individual patients and to integrate patients' own benefit-risk tradeoffs in individualized treatment using digital tools. Karin Schölin Bywall is working with both qualitative exploration and quantitative preference elicitation methods, to explore how people balance their interests and values. She is also part of the IMI-funded PREFER project aiming to investigate methodologies to elicit informed patient preferences regarding the benefits and risks of drugs, from development through the entire cycle, to inform the decision-making process by regulators and HTA bodies.
