Epidemiology Faculty and Research

Our research mission is met by study into the risk of disease associated with inherent, acquired, social, and environmental factors, and by the development and application of methods to alleviate that risk ranging from primary prevention through service provision to modification of social systems. Our faculty and epidemiology students pursue this mission through research projects conducted both by individuals and by multidisciplinary teams.
