Janick Weberpals, RPh, PhD, is an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Associate Scientist in the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

His research interests focus on the comparative effectiveness and safety of cancer therapies and the development and application of novel methods to improve causal inference from highly integrated clinical data dimensions including electronic health records (EHR), images and unstructured notes. His most recent projects centered around missing data approaches in EHR, prognostics scores in oncology and applications of machine learning and deep learning networks (autoencoders) to improve confounding control in comparative effectiveness research. He has further conducted and published multiple studies on drug repurposing in oncology, time-dependent biases and long-term population level cancer survival using national and European cancer registries for which he received several awards including the Stephan-Weiland prize and the Advancement Award in Epidemiology by the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology.

Dr. Weberpals holds a pharmacy degree from Philipps University Marburg, Germany, a board certification as specialized pharmacist in drug information and a Ph.D. in Epidemiology from the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
