Victor Pera obtained his BSc (2014) and MSc (2020) in Pharmacy from the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). In addition, he obtained a MSc (2020) in Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences with a specialization in the field of pharmaco-epidemiology at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). He wrote his master thesis on the effectiveness of antibiotics for the treatment of COPD exacerbations by utilizing both the LifeLines and the IADB.nl database. In November 2020, Victor joined as a PhD candidate the Health Data Science group of the Medical Informatics department at the Erasmus University Medical Center (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) to conduct research on Medication Errors. He is working extensively with the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS), the European Medicines Agency’s EudraVigilance, the Integrated Primary Case Information (IPCI) database, and utilizes tools from the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) collaborative and the Data Analysis and Real World Interrogation Network (DARWIN EU®) to work on databases mapped to the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) Common Data Model (CDM).
