The Research

The first quarter-century of observational studies and clinical trials in CVD prevention research is documented here in standardized synopses along with the institutions and scientific community that grew to guide and support CVD epidemiology. Anecdotes are collected, rather than a thoroughgoing history, of the early evolution of field methods, study design, analysis, guidelines to causal inference, computation and data handling.
