Disease prevention is a challenging area of medical science. There are many unanswered questions about the right balance between community-based programs and a targeted approach to those at high risk of disease. The cost effectiveness of many proposed interventions is unclear and, in some instances, long-term safety requires further study. Separating unwarranted enthusiasm from science is a major challenge for all researchers involved in this field.
Experienced researchers in the division can access the full range of the clinical and public health skills required for active and successful evaluations.
