Faculty members in the Division of Epidemiology have diverse research interests and have obtained grants for studies in cancer mechanisms, cancer control and prevention, environmental air quality and its link to cardiovascular disease, adolescent health, and bone mineral health. They also teach core courses in the department’s master of science degree program and an epidemiology course for third-year medical students. Medical students receive additional guidance from the faculty and staff in epidemiology for their Medical Student Research Program projects.
Faculty members direct the Northern Appalachia Cancer Network, an academic-community partnership to identify the causes of cancer health disparities within rural and medically underserved communities of Pennsylvania and New York.
