About Epidemiology

Epidemiology is defined as the study of the distribution and determinants of disease and injury within human populations. A goal of the epidemiologist is to identify the factors or agents that are linked with the observed patterns of disease or injury. The Division's program stresses environmental, occupational, clinical, quantitative, community, molecular and genetic epidemiology.

Current research undertaken in the Division is wide ranging and includes health effects related to exposures to lead, manganese, mercury, arsenic, solvents, fuels, pesticides, organochlorines and other “environmental estrogens”, fibers, radiation, statistical issues in regulatory toxicology, alcohol and illicit drugs, and work related ergonomic disorders.

Areas of research include:
children’s health, allergy, asthma, reproductive, hormone, cancer, genetics of complex diseases, growth and development, developmental origins of adult disease, neurological disorders, addiction, pulmonary disease, injuries, stroke, heart disease, bone health, mortality and exposure body burden.
