Research Summary

Dr. Wallach’s research focuses on evaluating and improving research practices. His primary area of research, known as meta-research (i.e., the study of research itself), includes the key thematic areas of research methods, reporting/transparency, and research reproducibility. Dr. Wallach’s research interests include meta-analytical methodology, evaluating study biases, clinical trial design/conduct, pharmacoepidemiology, and regulatory science. His work with the Collaboration for Research Integrity and Transparency (CRIT) at Yale focuses on evaluating the tools, standards, and approaches used to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of FDA-regulated products using epidemiologic and meta-research methods. Dr. Wallach is also a Faculty Affiliate of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS). He is currently working to create a meta-research group with the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, which will focus on environmental exposure/climate change research.
