Our researchers focus on three disease domains that have a large impact on humanity and society: cancer, cardiovascular epidemiology, and infectious diseases. The fourth research program is methodology, the science that studies technological innovations in medicine.Our research is multidisciplinary: several departments and disciplines work closely together.
Slowing down the vascular aging process during the course of life and, in doing so, reducing the disease burden of cardiovascular disease. That is the objective of the Cardiovascular Health program.
Epidemiology of infectious diseases
Infectious diseases are very common. We focus on the study of the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of infections. We also study respiratory tract infections that patients contract in a hospital environment.
Every year, the number of new cancer patients increases, and improved survival in cancer patients results in a growing number of patients living with the long-term consequences of cancer.
We focus on the theory and methodology of epidemiological research. We improve existing and develop new innovative methods for design, statistical analysis, bioinformatics, healthcare economy and ethics of research.
Studies, PhD research and cohorts
We participate in long-term cohorts and short-term studies and projects.
Every year, dozens of PhD candidates take their doctoral degree in a study they record in a thesis.
