DBEI Research Integration Focused Series

DBEI Research Integration Focused Series

Don't miss the debut of our new DBEI Research Integration Focused Series (DBEI-RISE)! We will meet virtually to identify topics of scientific importance that we can best pursue via collaborations among DBEI faculty, PSOM faculty and Penn faculty. Through presentations, discussions and brainstorming, DBEI-RISE will facilitate new collaborative work on both scientific and methodological questions that require further research. DBEI-RISE will hold quarterly meetings, each on a Friday from 10 am to 4 pm. Each meeting will generally include eight presentations and discussions. See below for our list of expert presenters in January!

About Us

To understand health and disease today, we need new thinking and novel science —the kind  we create when multiple disciplines work together from the ground up. That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics. LEARN MORE ABOUT US
