Population Matters

Even without a formal school of public health, numerous avenues for public health related research and study have emerged at Stanford independent of a formal structure. Driven by a growing faculty and student interest, the programs range from formal degrees to pure research centers and even student groups.

Researchers devise new clinical trial system

A team of Boston- and Stanford-based researchers has devised a less costly, clinic-based approach to randomized clinical trials (RCT) that shifts patients to a more successful therapy as the trial progresses. The method, based on the Veteran’s Affairs (VA) electronic medical records system (EMR), is currently being tested in a comparative effectiveness trial of two insulin regimens in the Boston VA system.
