Section of Epidemiology, Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, Denmark


Epidemiology is a fundamental science for understanding the health status of individuals and populations. It is an essential discipline to unravel individual risks and improve clinical care as well as understand determinants of public health and how to prevent the burden of disease.

Section of Epidemiology contributes to the development of the field of theoretical epidemiology, with a specific focus on causal inference, complexity and life course epidemiology. The dynamic interplay between genes, environment and health across the life course and across generations are objects of research in the section.
