Epidemiology Research

Epidemiology provides principles and methods that can be used to investigate almost any aspect of health or disease in human populations, from discovering a new cause of cancer to evaluating the effectiveness of a public health program. Epidemiologic research is inherently multidisciplinary and collaborative, often involving experts from diverse fields such as medicine, biostatistics, exposure assessment, genetics or social science, as well as epidemiologists.

Faculty and students in the Department of Epidemiology engage in a wide range of research projects in Nebraska and around the world.
