Our researchers work across four major themes:
Take-home naloxone (THN) & naloxone-on-release (NOR) reduce opioid-related deaths: from evidence of high risk soon after prison-release through science-led evaluations of THN/NOR to the monitoring of national naloxone policies.
Sheila M. Bird, MRC Biostatistics Unit, CAMBRIDGE CB2 0SR “Success has a thousand fathers, failure is an orphan”. On December 8th 2014, we marked success.

In this feature Steven Hill (an Investigator Statistician within Sach Mukherjee’s group at the MRC Biostatistics Unit) describes how important causal relationships are for science and his involvement in a recent, high-profile computational biology challenge known as “DREAM” that focused on causality. Determining cause and effect is one of the central goals of science: for […]
