This issue of Medical Writing (MEW) is about statistics, so what is more appropriate than interviewing a research methodologist who focuses on epidemiology and statistics in clinical research? I am happy that we were able to win Professor Peter Jüni for this interview. Peter Jüni is a physician by education, has been a Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and the Director of the Clinical Trials Unit and the Institute of Primary Health Care at the University of Bern. In 2016, he moved to Toronto where he is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and the director of the Applied Health Research Centre (AHRC) at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute. The AHRC is a leading not-for profit academic research organization fully integrated with the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital and affiliated with the University of Toronto.
