EpidemiologyProfessor Graham Law, Professor in Medical Statistics, will give the next CaHRU and LIH seminar on Tuesday 11th April from 2.00pm to 3.00pm in DCB2111.

“Causal models and DAGs” One of the two aims of the scientific methods of epidemiology is to discover the causes, ‘the determinants’ of disease, or ‘health related states’. This implies we can conduct causal modelling which brings with it a whole host of problems, complexities and arguments. I will discuss some of the core elements of causal modelling, such as the counterfactual, and then examine confounding, competing exposures, and randomised controlled trials. Then we will all explore Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs).”
