Event description

Description

This is the evening lecture at the Leopold Hotel, for the afternoon lecture held at The Circle please click here.

David M Tuller, DrPH, is a Senior Fellow in Public Health and Journalism at the Center for Global Health, University of California, Berkeley, California.

Recognised as one of the most vocal champions of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Dr Tuller is a respected academic and journalist who has written extensively about the PACE trial. His investigations into the integrity of clinical trials are revealing numerous flaws and these findings are now leading him to question an entire body of research, much of which has been conducted in the United Kingdom. Dr Tuller will discuss trial design, statistical validity, quality of reporting, undisclosed conflicts of interest and more.

Dr Tuller has previously worked as a reporter and editor for ten years at the San Francisco Chronicle, served as health editor at Salon.com and has frequently written about health for The New York Times. He has been instrumental in bringing to light bad science and raising awareness among a wider audience. Recent tours have taken him to meet both researchers and patient advocates across Australasia and Europe, and his work to hold to account the field of ME research continues.

We are delighted to welcome him to Sheffield.
