Michel has applied up-to-date statistical methods to different clinical and epidemiological studies from analysis of variance to linear mixed models or generalized mixed models. He has worked on several review and meta-analyses, individual patient data meta-analyses and secondary analyses. Currently his research topic is applied individual patient data network meta-analysis and generalized linear mixed models. He is interested in the methodology of clinical trials.

He has been working for several years in the field of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer diseases and other neurologic illnesses like Stroke or Migraine. He collaborated with physicians at the City Hospital of Luxembourg to analyse case series, case-control studies on sleep disturbance in PD as well as loss of emotion recognition but also an interventional study in Stroke.

The CCMS is providing support to LIH researchers for the design and analysis of their Public Health, Epidemiological and biological researches. The CCMS works closely with the CIEC and IBBL, also part of the TMOH, to offer all services required to design, run, analyse and report properly translational and clinical studies.
