Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Biodemography

Human aging and development

Why do some people become ill while others remain healthy, although they are exposed to the same environment? How much is due to genes and how much to environment? And how will our health and life span develop in the years to come?

Research and Cooperation

At the research unit of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Biodemography (EBB) we study human development and aging and the link between them. We are engaged in cross-disciplinary research teams that combine methods from epidemiology, genetics, statistics, bioinformatics and demography.

Our research is primarily within the two focus areas: Aging and twin research


Education and Supervision

EBB are responsible for the teaching of epidemiology and biostatistics to medical students as well as students of Master of Science in Public Health and Biomechanics. We also run a series of courses in epidemiology and statistics at the PhD-programme at the Faculty of Health Sciences.
