Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am an epidemiologist and dentist. I have been the principal or co-principal of multiple Japanese government funded grants focusing on QOL/PRO (Patient reported outcomes) research. I have also involved in conducting a couple of large cohort study such as the LEMONADE study (more than 20,000 dentists enrolled) and the Japan Multi-Institutional Collaborative Cohort Study (90,000 people have enrolled).
