Molecular Epidemiology

This course enables participants to develop skills for identifying the causes and consequences of molecular variation within population-based studies. Causes of molecular variation explored include genotype, developmental processes, exposures, phenotypes, and disease processes. Consequences examined include health outcomes such as disease onset, disease progression and response to therapy. The course will be led by molecular epidemiologists in the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. Their research utilises biological samples from a variety of established cohort resources and applies bioinformatic and statistical approaches for biomarker development and validation.

Note: This course was previously titled Epigenetic Epidemiology
