Helena C. Kraemer, Karen Kraemer Lowe, and David J. Kupfer, M.D.

  • Discussion of the issues in non-technical language with interesting and real demonstrations from the general media as well as scientific journals
  • A careful evaluation of methods that work very well (longitudinal risk studies, randomized clinical trials) as well as those that are problematic (case-control studies, cross-sectional studies)
  • Re-evaluation of old methods, some of which prove questionable, and introduction of some novel methods
