Marcel G. Naik
Dr. Marcel G. Naik is part of the collaborating working group “digital nephrology” at Charité Universitaetsmedizin Berlin. He started his academic career during his medical school training writing his thesis under supervision of Prof. Dr. Budde investigating immunosuppressive effects in immune cells for individualization of immunosuppressive therapy in renal-transplanted patients. During the long course of finishing his thesis, he was introduced into relational databases and statistical analysis. He developed interest in tackling the problems of a database arising in clinical routine use with existing missing values and poor normalization. Another big influence was performing the statistical analysis of a national multicenter study that helped him to improve his statistical knowledge. Beside his daily clinical routine, he submitted abstracts to international transplant congresses. Marcel Naik’s main research interests are in the field of renal transplantation involving individualized immunosuppression, organ allocation and the clinical problems inherited in transplantation like (viral) infections and occurrence of cancers. He is specialized in Internal Medicine and undergoes his training for subspecialization in Nephrology. Dr. Marcel G. Naik is participant in the BIH Charité Digital Clinician Scientist Program funded by the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH). He is interested in datascience, statistics and programming.
