Burden of Proof Studies
Nature Medicine has just published the Burden of Proof studies, focusing on our new methodology and analysis of dose-response relationships for different risk-outcome pairs in global health. The issue has perspective and opinion pieces, as well as five scientific papers:
- Methods capstone
- Analysis of vegetables consumption
- Analysis of unprocessed red meat consumption
- Analysis of systolic blood pressure vs heart disease
- Analysis of smoking
The results for 50 risk-outcome pairs analyzed in these papers are shown in a convenient viz tool. A widley accessible research brief is published in The Conversation.
- The Math Sciences Team at IHME has been working on COVID-19 modeling. This work how now been published in Nature Medicine. Earlier modeling, developed at the start of the pandemic and based on the CurveFit tool, is available on Medrxiv. An article describing this work is available in the A&S Newsletter.
