Konstantinos K. Tsilidis

University of Ioannina, Greece


I am currently a Lecturer of Epidemiology at the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology of the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Ioannina, Greece. After a Bachelor's degree in Nursing and a Master of Public Health at the University of Athens, Greece, I received a PhD in Epidemiology and a Master of Health Science in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. From 2008 to 2010, I was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Cancer Epidemiology Unit of the University of Oxford. I am a cancer epidemiologist, and I work primarily in the etiology of colorectal and prostate cancer, where I study the association between modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors related to diabetes, obesity, inflammation, insulin resistance and hormonal pathways. I am also involved in research that identifies and solves methodologic issues, in particular the evaluation of existence and impact of bias in the epidemiologic literature, and use of causal inference methods to avoid systematic errors.
