Our epidemiology faculty members employ many different avenues to discover, implement and disseminate novel methods that stand to improve the health of the public. They study a broad array of clinical and population-health issues. Read about some of our findings.

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.
