John P. A. Ioannidis (born August 21, 1965 in New York City) is a Professor of Health Research and Policy at Stanford School of Medicine, the University's Rehnborg Chair in Disease Prevention and director of its Prevention Research Center, and co-director, along with Steven Goodman, of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS). He was chairman at the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology, University of Ioannina School of Medicine as well as adjunct professor at Tufts University School of Medicine. He is best known for his research and published papers on scientific studies, particularly the 2005 paper "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False".
Ioannidis (2005) Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.
Born in New York City in 1965, Ioannidis was raised in Athens, Greece. He was Valedictorian of his class at Athens College, graduating in 1984. He also graduated first in his class at the University of Athens Medical School, then attended Harvard University for his medical residency in internal medicine. He did a fellowship at Tufts University for infectious disease.
Ioannidis's 2005 paper "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False" has been the most downloaded technical paper from the journal PLoS Medicine. A profile of his work in this area appears in the November 2010 issue of The Atlantic. The Atlantic article notes Ioannidis analyzed "49 of the most highly regarded research findings in medicine over the previous 13 years". In the paper Ioannidis compared the 45 studies that claimed to have uncovered effective interventions with data from subsequent studies with larger sample sizes: 7 (16%) of the studies were contradicted, 7 (16%) the effects were smaller than in the initial study, 20 (44%) were replicated and 11 (24%) of the studies remained largely unchallenged.
Statisticians Goodman and Greenland agreed that "many medical research findings are less definitive than readers suspect" but disputed his headline claims as unsupportable by the methods used. Ioannidis responded to this critique and other researchers have generally supported the general thrust of his findings. Ioannidis' work is focused on improving research design standards.
He coined the term Proteus phenomenon for the tendency of replication studies to refute their parent.
