He then completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a second post-doctoral fellowship at the NIH-funded New York Obesity Research Center at St. Luke's/Roosevelt Hospital Center.

He has authored more than 660 scientific publications and received many awards over his distinguished career. Dean Allison has provided regular service to the National Academies, including the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine.

His research interests include obesity and nutrition, quantitative genetics, clinical trials, statistical and research methodology, and research rigor and integrity.

"Dr. Allison coined "It's about knowing" as the tagline for the School of Public Health Indiana University Bloomington for which serves as Dean, and the extended moto "It's about knowing. Because conjecture is good, but knowing is better." He conceived a book by the title "It's About Knowing" written principally by Susan Brackney and co-authored by Dr. Allison. More information about the book is available here."

This week we tackle the difficulty of performing meaningful research in the Obesity landscape. This is a conversation primarily about the study process and the difficulties in teasing out the variables.

Enjoy,
Dr. M
