About Dr. Lyons-Weiler

Dr. Lyons-Weiler has seventeen years' experience in biomedical research, serving primarily in the capacity of research study design and analysis.  His primary interests are in the development of prediction models of adverse outcomes of biomedical treatments, therapies, and biologic prophylatics and in the molecular and cellular basis of disease.  He was the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the open-access journal Cancer Informatics, and has served on the editorial board of numerous journals.  His latest journal, Science, Public Health Policy, & the Law, brings forward views and analyses of the goodness of fit between public health and medical practices and science.

Dr. Lyons-Weiler has served as an expert witness in cases involving vaccine injury.
