Welcome to Epidemiology Group

Patient care in clinical practice always depends on medical research evidences. Understanding epidemiologic evidences in patient populations has received more attention in recent years.

The members of our research group take challenges on the development and application of epidemiologic techniques and provide relevant evidences for diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Research Content

Clinical epidemiology has been evolved in modern medicine, based on two disciplines of clinical sciences and epidemiology. That helps to understand the conceptual gaps between structured experience of basic science and the more complex, open-ended problems arising for the care of patients. Based on the principals of clinical trials and the use of clinical epidemiology, we tried to provide the evidence towards improving the care of the patients.
