How to find us dr. S. (Stephen (Stefan)) Peuchen

Research interests

Dr. Stephen Peuchen  is head of the Research Office of the University Medical Center Groningen (NL), responsible for both research assessments and research funding. He obtained a Ph.D. in Clinical Chemistry from the Department of Pathology of the VCU Medical Center in Richmond VA, U.S.A in 1990. He subsequently moved to the Institute of Neurology of University College London (UCL, U.K.) for a Research Fellow position in the Dept. of Neurochemistry. In his current position he spent more than 10 years on the policy development and implementation of major biobanks (incl. biobank information management systems) in Medicine and remains a national advisor on research policy in biobanking. Dr. Peuchen is a part-time lecturer in Research Methodology in the Master Programme of Transfusion Medicine of the Univ. of Groningen. One of his current interests is the potential application of ‘recommender system’ models to Research Information Systems.
