Epidemiology is the study of occurrence and distribution of health-related conditions in defined populations. Its uses are far-reaching and include measuring the incidence or prevalence of, and risk factors for diseases and other health outcomes; evaluating therapeutic interventions; and examining the properties of diagnostic and screening tests (i.e. sensitivity/specificity). Epidemiologic methods are particularly valuable to those investigators examining a new disease or outcome, new treatment or disagnostic tool, or those who require preliminary information about a particular disease or intervention prior to submitting a grant. The Epidemiology Core provides assistance to investigators that need or wish to incorporate epidemiologic methods into their research.
