Clinical Epidemiology and Public Health

Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. The Clinical Epidemiology area of interest is the largest of the 12 areas of interest in the department of epidemiology. The Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health supports research into causes, mechanisms, prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, support systems, and palliation for a wide range of conditions associated with the heart, lung, brain (stroke), blood, blood vessels, critical care and sleep. Emergency medicine is a medical specialty involving care for adult and pediatric patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention.

The advent of ever more sophisticated molecular manipulation techniques has made it clear that cellular systems are far more complex and dynamic than previously thought. At the same time, experimental techniques are providing an almost overwhelming amount of new data. The computational modeling is increasingly apparent that linking molecular and cellular structure to function will require the use of new computational tools. Many pregnancies have led to maternal mortality and maternal morbidity Maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) is the branch of obstetrics that focuses on the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies.
