Dr. Newman uses methods of epidemiology to do research on clinical problems in pediatrics, such as jaundice and infections in newborn babies, urinary tract infections and cholesterol screening.
He has a long term interest in teaching clinical research methods and is coauthor of two textbooks: Designing Clinical Research (4th edition, by Stephen Hulley et al) and Evidence-Based Diagnosis (with Dr. Michael Kohn, 2nd edition forthcoming).
