Research transparency | health and social interventions | Clinical trials | Systematic reviews
I investigate methods for conducting, reporting, and synthesizing health and social intervention research. I am particularly interested in ways to increase transparency and reproducibility, such as trial registration and data sharing.
I am a member of the Consolidated Standards for Reporting Trials Extension for Social and Psychological Interventions (CONSORT-SPI) executive committee and the American Psychological Association Journal Article Reporting Standards (JARS) task force, which developed reporting guidelines required by American Psychological Association (APA) journals. I serve on the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines coordinating committee, which is responsible for the dissemination and implementation of standards for research transparency, and the Registered Reports coordinating committee, which works with journals to increase the prospective registration of research. I work closely with the Clinical Trials Registration and Results Reporting Taskforce.
In 2017, I served as a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Science of Behavior Change (SOBC) working group to improve NIH policies and procedures for reporting the methods and results of clinical trials of behavioral interventions. I also served as a member of the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) working group responsible for developing standards for comparator selection in NIH trials of behavioral and social interventions.
Many evaluations of social and psychological interventions are not reported. Evaluations that are reported in academic journals often omit information that would be necessary to understand their methods and results.
Using evidence about reporting quality, and by engaging a broad community of researchers in a consensus process, we developed new recommendations for reporting clinical trials of social and psychological interventions. The guidelines appear in two papers. The first paper outlines the main recommendations. The second paper is a "user's guide" for authors and editors.
Under the Food and Drug Administration Act of 2007 (FDAAA) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) policies, many clinical trials must be registered and reported on www.ClinicalTrials.gov. FDA has the power to assess civil money penalties of more than $11,000 per day per trial for non-compliance, and NIH may withhold future funding from organizations that do not follow these rules.
We surveyed more than 350 academic organizations that conduct clinical trials. In a paper in BMC Medicine, we report that most organizations are unprepared to meet these new requirements. Our results may explain why so many trials are not registered and reported as required.
Out of respect for the people who participate in research, and to prevent research waste, all clinical trials should be registered and their results should be reported. New NIH requirements mark an important step towards research transparency, but we argue that the system should be adapted to allow accurate reporting of social and behavioral research.
It is often impossible to compare all of the various interventions that could be used to treat a health problem in a single clinical trial. To develop clinical guidance, we conducted a network meta-analysis comparing all the interventions that could be used to treat social anxiety disorder. We found that psychological interventions are most effective for people with social anxiety.
Children who do not get enough vitamin A are at increased risk of disease, blindness, and death. In a systematic review, we found that numerous trials had evaluated the effects of vitamin A supplementation. Given the strength of the existing evidence, we concluded that it would be unethical to conduct further clinical trials of this effective intervention.

Each summer, I teach on a NIH summer institute.
Summer Institute on Randomized Behavioral Clinical Trials, National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
This summer institute is a two-week course for postdoctoral researchers and junior faculty. I attend for one week, during which I give lectures and work with groups of fellows to develop protocols for clinical trials of behavioral interventions.
At Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, I taught three courses: Introduction to Clinical Trials (304.645.81), Clinical Trials: Procedures, Design, and Interpretation of Results (340.861.81), and Methods for Conducting Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (340.606.01). At the University of Oxford, I taught Research Methods and Systematic Reviews.
This course teaches students conduct systematic reviews and meta-analyses, including: defining eligibility criteria, searching for studies, extracting data, conducting pairwise meta-analyses and exploring heterogeneity of effects, interpreting results, and writing research reports. The course also offers a preliminary introduction to network meta-analysis.
This course introduces masters and PhD students to the methods for conducting and analyzing clinical trials. Students learn about the features of various trial designs, ways to minimize risk of bias, calculate trial sample size, randomly assign participants to groups, and report results according to current guidelines. The course is offered during the second term. An introductory course in epidemiology, and Introduction to Online Learning, are prerequisites.
This course offers a detailed study of clinical trials, including data management, data and safety monitoring boards, and clinical trial regulation. Students learn to develop a study protocol and related documents required to conduct clinical trials. Introduction to Clinical Trials (340.645) is a prerequisite.
I am an Associate Editor for the peer review of PCORI's funded research.
