Advanced spatial transcriptomics techniques are advancing our understanding of cancer and other diseases at the cellular level: “You can zoom in, you can look at the tissue-specific features, how many cells there are, what is the cell density, and what are the morphological features of individual cells,” says Mingyao Li, PhD.
Some social media posts have misinterpreted and publicized a criticized study that claims to have identified a correlation between emergency calls for cardiac events and the vaccination rate in Israel. “Much of what I am seeing is people presenting more examples of time series for select places and times, or more scatterplots, considering this validation of a narrative of vaccine harm," commented Jeffrey S. Morris, PhD. "Many times I don’t see an acknowledgement of the limitations of these approaches … or acknowledgement that these are hypotheses that need validation.”

That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics. LEARN MORE ABOUT US
