Marcel Naik started his academic career during his medical school training doing 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 database 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 that he tries to improve. 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 undergoes his medical training for specialization in Internal Medicine and Nephrology.The area of computer and data science is completely new to him and he hopes to develop a general understanding of the procedures applied in his project as well as to develop light programming skills.
