About The Book

This textbook describes the basics of research in medical clinical and biomedical settings as well as the concepts and application of epidemiologic designs in research conduct. Design transcends statistical techniques and no matter how sophisticated a statistical modeling errors of design/sampling cannot be corrected. The authors of this textbook have presented a complex field in a very simplified and friendly manner with the intent that such presentation will facilitate the understanding of design process and epidemiologic thinking in clinical and biomedical research. Research is presented as exercise around measurement with measurement error inevitable in its conduct and hence the inherent uncertainties of all findings in clinical and biomedical research. Concise Epidemiologic Principles and Concepts covers research conceptualization namely research objectives questions hypothesis design implementation data collection analysis results and interpretation. While the primary focus of epidemiology is to assess the relationship between exposure (risk or predisposing factor) and outcome (disease or health related events) causal association is presented in a simplified manner including the role of quantitative evidence synthesis (meta-analysis) in causal inference. Epidemiology has evolved during the past three decades resulting in several fields being developed. This text presents in brief the perspectives and future of epidemiology in the era of molecular basis of medicine. With molecular epidemiology we are better equipped with tools to identify molecular biologic indicators of risk as well as biologic alterations in the early stages of disease.
