Tessa Rue (MS ’06), a research scientist with UW Biostat’s Center for Biomedical Statistics, is among the co-authors of research that created a novel system to identify emergency room patients in need of a blood transfusion.
M. Elizabeth Halloran, UW professor of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, is one of the authors of a new-time-series analysis The study provides initial evidence of the population-level impact of rotavirus vaccines in children <2 years of age in Matlab, Bangladesh.
Glyphosate, an herbicide that remains the world's most ubiquitous weed killer, raises the cancer risk of those exposed to it by 41%, a new analysis says. Senior author Lianne Sheppard, UW professor in biostatistics and environmental and occupational health sciences, said she was "convinced" of the carcinogenic properties of the chemical.
Exposure to glyphosate — the world’s most widely used, broad-spectrum herbicide and the primary ingredient in the weedkiller Roundup — increases the risk of some cancers by more than 40 percent, according to new research from the University of Washington. “Our analysis focused on providing the best possible answer to the question of whether or not glyphosate is carcinogenic,” said senior author Lianne Sheppard, a professor in the UW departments of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences and Biostatistics. “As a result of this research, I am even more convinced that it is.”
Study says evidence ‘supports link’ between exposure to glyphosate and increased risk. “This paper makes a stronger case than previous meta-analyses that there is evidence of an increased risk of NHL due to glyphosate exposure,” said co-author Lianne Sheppard, a professor in the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences department at the University of Washington. “From a population health point of view there are some real concerns.”
Co-author, Professor Lianne Sheppard from the University of Washington, said: 'This paper makes a stronger case than previous meta-analyses that there is evidence of an increased risk of NHL due to glyphosate exposure.
Senior author Lianne Sheppard, a professor in the UW departments of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences and Biostatistics, told the Guardian that the EPA evaluation is wrong. "It was pretty obvious they didn't follow their own rules," she said to the publication. "Is there evidence that it is carcinogenic? The answer is yes."
