Who are going to live long and healthy lives – and why?
At the research unit of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Biodemography (EBB) we study human development and aging and the link between them, using data from large Danish population-based surveys. The Danish health registers and The Danish Twin Registry are valuable resources in the study of gene-environment interactions in human development and aging.
Epidemiology: Networks and education
The Epidemiology Unit is part of several cross-disciplinary research teams that combine methods from epidemiology, genetics, statistics, bioinformatics and demography. We are responsible for the teaching of epidemiology and biostatistics to medical students as well as students of Master of Science in Public Health, Master of Rehabilitation, and Biomechanics. We also run a series of courses in epidemiology and statistics at the PhD-program at Faculty of Health Sciences.
The unit includes
- Danish Twin Registry - DTR
- Danish Aging Research Center - DARC
- Max-Planck Odense Center on the Biodemography of Aging - MaxO
- Biostatistical Consultancy Service
