Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Janet Elizabeth Lane-Claypon (1877-1967) was an English physician. She was one of the founders of the science of epidemiology, pioneering the use of so-called cohort studies and case-control studies. Born into an affluent Lincolnshire family, she was privately educated and entered the London School of Medicine for Women in 1898. A brilliant student, she won various honours, fellowships and degrees, including both an MD and PhD (making her an exceptionally early example of the "Doctor-doctor" phenomenon only now becoming common in modern medicine). By 1910, Lane-Claypon had acquired student honors, distinctive fellowships, and a string of degrees, including a doctorate in physiology and an M.D.
