Research subject

Our research is concerned with how inherited characteristics, environmental exposures and treatment influence the risk of specific diseases (such as cancer, immune-mediated and metabolic diseases), and disease outcomes. Often, we use a life-course approach which assumes that the consequences may differ by age at exposure, that some risks accumulate over time, and there may be a substantial delay between initial exposure and disease outcome. Epidemiology is a science of study/experimental design, while biostatistics involves analysis, often of large and complex data.
