Biomedical Informatics, Health Informatics, Accrual problems in clinical trials, Information theory, Monitoring adverse events in clinical trials, Research ethics, Risk adjustment models
Most of my research is characterized as meta-research–research about the research process. One example is monitoring accrual patterns in prospective clinical trials. Another is mining the electronic health records to identify patients for clinical trials. A third example is comparing the initial IRB research application to what (if anything) gets published.
