IRG Summary

The Population Sciences and Epidemiology [PSE] IRG reviews crosscutting research relating to: the distribution of health conditions in human populations in relation to time, place, environmental exposures, personal characteristics or behaviors and the broader sociodemographic contexts in which health and health-related behaviors are embedded; the determinants of the etiologic pathways to diseases, using the full range of epidemiologic inquiry, including neuroimaging, molecular, genetic, laboratory, demographic, observational or clinical measures within the context of an epidemiologic or demographic study design; prevention trials in all settings; transmission of disease; laboratory-based research when the primary thrust is epidemiologic and laboratory data are to be collected by methods that largely already developed; and development and improvement of research designs and methodologies addressing epidemiologic and demographic questions in public health and clinical medicine. The intent is to cluster epidemiologic and demographic applications for review.
