Prof. Barbara Osimani is Director of the Center for Philosophy, Science, and Policy and Associate Professor of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Polytechnic University of the Marche, Italy. She has been recently heading an ERC project, which also ran at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, LMU: "Philosophy of Pharmacology: Safety, Statistical Standards, and Evidence Amalgamation" (GA StG 639276). She is an ordinary member of the Open Science Center at the LudwigMaximilians Universität, Munich, and Visiting Professor at the MCMP, LMU. Her current research interests are focused on philosophy of statistics and scientific inference in research contexts characterised by strategic behaviour. She is developing a "Formal Epistemology of Medicine", with the aim to analyse the complex interaction of methodological, social and regulatory as well as ethical dimensions in medicine. Her scientific interests include: the precautionary principle, evidence hierarchies, causality, and statistical inference in medicine. Her recent papers analyse issues around philosophy of evidence (reliability, bias, reproducibility, coherence) from a Bayesian perspective. Within her ERC Grant she developed a Bayesian framework for the integration of heterogenous items of evidence and higher order evidence for the purpose of causal assessment of drug-induced harm ("E-Synthesis"), in collaboration with Drug Agencies across Europe.
