You can’t fix by analysis what you bungled by design
— Richard Light, Judith Singer, and John Willet, 1990

This quote highlights the importance of getting advice from an experienced epidemiologist well before you begin designing your research study. Undertaking superior quality research studies will ultimately provide the ‘truth’ and lead the way for future research in any area of medicine or health.

Our aim is to provide you with not only results, but also an understanding of those results and what it means for you and the impact this has on your research question. We provide independent confidential advice and analysis on all aspects of medical and health-based research.
