Edmond Hustinx Prize 2020 goes to Laure Wynants
How can you predict which COVID-19 patients will become seriously ill? And what are the chances of survival in patients who have been admitted to the ICU? From the beginning of the pandemic, doctors have been trying to find answers to these kinds of questions. Prediction models can help with this. But which model works well? Statistician Laure Wynants, together with a team of forty researchers from the Netherlands and abroad, started a living review to review and appraise all published papers on this topic. She was awarded the Edmond Hustinx Prize 2020, that goes to a Maastricht University researcher every year, for her work.
