Michael Hughes’ Bradford Hill Memorial Lecture

Professor Michael Hughes was recently invited to give the 28th annual Bradford Hill Memorial Lecture at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in conjunction with the Medical Section of the Royal Statistical Society.

This annual lecture was named in honor of Sir Austin Bradford Hill, an English epidemiologist and statistician who pioneered the randomized clinical trial and, together with Richard Doll, demonstrated the connection between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. Hill is widely known for pioneering the “Bradford Hill” criteria for determining a causal association.
Michael’s lecture was on “Confronting the HIV epidemic: statistical issues in treatment evaluation and policy.”
