How Not to Evaluate and Market a Diagnostic Test: A Case Study in Autism

Steven Goodman’s research focuses on the proper measurement, conceptualization, and synthesis of research evidence, with an emphasis on Bayesian approaches to quantitation and qualitative approaches arising from the philosophy of science. He is also interested in developing methods to use shared data to confirm and extend published science, as well as to explore new hypotheses. He has worked on the connections between ethics and scientific methods, particularly in the domain of interventional research, and policy making.


Steven Goodman, MD, MHS, PhD is Associate Dean of Clinical and Translational Research and Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health, and Medicine at Stanford University. He is co-founder and co-director of the Meta-research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS), a group dedicated to examining and improving the reproducibility and efficiency of biomedical research.
