The editorial staff of Science-Based Medicine is composed of physicians who, alarmed at the manner in which unscientific and pseudoscientific health care ideas have increasingly infiltrated academic medicine and medicine at large, have decided to do their part to examine these claims in the light of science and skepticism. We at SBM believe that medicine based on science is the best medicine and tirelessly promote science-based medicine through discussion of the role of science and medicine, as well as the interface between science, medicine, and (unfortunately) pseudoscience.
SBM is a completely independent endeavor. We receive no industry funding and have no conflicts of interest. Our only goal is to promote high standards of science in medicine.
In addition to our editors and core group of bloggers, we have regular contributors who post here less frequently than every other week and provide invaluable additional commentary.
- Scott Gavura, BScPhm, MBA, RPh
- Timothy Krieder
- David J. Kroll, PhD
- Brennen McKenzie, MA, VMD
- David W. Ramey, DVM
- John M. Snyder, MD
Finally, note that we are always on the lookout for medical bloggers with an interest in the topics discussed on Science-Based Medicine and a track record in writing about them. Anyone interested in contributing to this blog should contact either Dr. Gorski or Dr. Novella.
