Epidemiology Research Interest Areas
Focuses on studying cancer prevention, causes and control, as well as factors affecting trends in cancer incidence, mortality, screening and treatment.
Clinical Health Services Epidemiology
Aims to improve health outcomes by quantifying safety and effectiveness of clinical, preventive, and healthcare interventions.
Chronic Disease / Lifecourse Epidemiology
Provides the interested student with the opportunity to learn techniques and tools to investigate etiology and control, including screening and outcomes, of chronic disease across the lifespan.
Infectious Disease Epidemiology
Improves health by assessing and quantifying the impact of infection and the use of control, treatment and prevention interventions to manage, eliminate and eradicate these diseases.
Students will have opportunities to collaborate and gain skills across many disciplines (e.g., medicine, engineering, psychology, urban planning), which will prepare them for careers in this growing field.
Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology
Aims to improve health outcomes by quantifying biologic information and assessing its influence on health, interventions, services and programs.
