The focus of the department of (clinical) epidemiology is on the study of factors related to the occurrence of diseases or complications. The department also develops new methods for performing studies involving populations or patients. We perform diagnostic, prognostic, etiologic, and therapeutic research, centering on the clinical relevance of research and the applicability in daily practice.
