Medical tests and biomarkers are used to discriminate between people who do have a certain target condition or disease (diagnosis) and those who do not. Tests may also be used to discriminate between people who will have a certain event (prediction or prognosis) and those who will not. Junfeng Wang focuses on the evaluation of medical tests and biomarkers, in both primary studies and in systematic reviews and meta-analyses. She presents a number of test evaluations and methodological developments to improve the methods for such evaluations.
