Areas of Interest: 

Methods in epidemiology and clinical epidemiology; epidemiology of cancers of the reproductive tract; measuring the efficacy of screening for cancer.

Dr. Weiss has been an epidemiologist for 50 years. While much of his work has been directed towards cancer epidemiology and epidemiologic methods, he has had a consistent interest in clinical epidemiology, i.e. the study of the outcome of illness. In 1986, he published a book on this subject - Clinical Epidemiology: The Study of the Outcome of Illness (Monographs in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, 36) - which is now in its third edition. In recent years, he has devoted considerable attention to the development of strategies to gauge the impact of diagnostic and screening tests.
