Research Scientist

Christoph Wilhelm is a research scientist at the Harding Center for Risk Literacy at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. Prior to his master's degree in public health, he worked as a specialized nurse for several years at various institutions. Beginning his scientific career, he increasingly focused on issues of evidence-based medicine and clinical decision-making. Today, his research interests are in health and social inequality research and shared/participative decision-making. His areas of responsibility at the Harding Center include systematic literature searches on the evidence of medical and health-promoting interventions, as well as critical study evaluation and data extraction to summaries evidence transparently in fact boxes. Fact boxes offer simple information about the benefits and harms of medical interventions, thus enabling lay people to make decisions about their own treatment.
