The Epidemiology Unit focuses on the development and application of rigorous epidemiological methods to create compelling evidence to influence policies and practices in public health. The Unit works across a broad range of health contexts such as: chronic diseases (obesity, cancer, diabetes and allergies) and infectious diseases (eg community superbugs: Staph and MRSA).
The epidemiological research method is primarily focussed on minimising or adjusting for bias. Our team, led by Professor Catherine Bennett since 2009 has applied this in numerous contexts including cross-sectional and case control studies, large scale cohorts and large database analysis.
The Epidemiology Unit partners with other University research groups across Australia and internationally as well as collaborating with government departments, health services, research institutes, laboratories and clinicians.
