Since 2010, TEPHINET has administered 130 mini-grants to trainees of field epidemiology training programs around the world. Mini-grants are small (usually around $5,000) grants awarded through a competitive application process to the trainee, who serves as principal investigator on a project designed to analyze existing health surveillance data in a particular subject area within his or her country. General topical areas for mini-grants range from non-communicable diseases to environmental health, emergency response, and special pathogens and zoonotic diseases.. TEPHINET coordinates the mini-grant application and selection process in close partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and manages contracting with mini-grantees, collecting deliverables, and dispersing grant funds. Subject matter experts from CDC serve as application reviewers and mentors to the mini-grantees. Grantees also receive mentorship from their local field epidemiology training programs. The end ...
In response to the need to develop their public health capabilities and infrastructure, several countries developed field-based training programs in applied epidemiology and public health. The primary goal of these training programs was to foster the development of field-trained epidemiologists who are competent in the practical application of epidemiologic methods to a wide range of public health problems in their respective areas.. Various models of field-based training programs exist, e.g. the Epidemic Intelligence Service of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETPs), Public Health Schools Without Walls (PHSWOWs) and the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET). Regardless of the model, all of them subscribe to the maxim of "training through service." Each program is adapted to meet the health needs of the country or region in which it functions.. TEPHINET Founded in 1997 ...

Cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates are high, particularly in developing countries. Most cervical cancers can be prevented by human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, screening, and timely treatment. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides global technical assistance for implementation and evaluation of HPV vaccination pilot projects and programs and laboratory-related HPV activities to assess HPV vaccines. CDC collaborates with global partners to develop global cervical cancer screening recommendations and manuals, implement screening, create standardized evaluation tools, and provide expertise to monitor outcomes. CDC also trains epidemiologists in cancer prevention through its Field Epidemiology Training Program and is working to improve cancer surveillance by supporting efforts of the World Health Organization in developing cancer registry hubs and assisting countries in estimating costs for developing population-based cancer registries. These activities ...

Clinical epidemiology can contribute to a better understanding and design of processes in medical research. Hence the natural target group of teaching clinical epidemiology is built by (young) medical researchers. Consequently, we focus in our teaching on post graduate education and life long learning.. The knowledge and methods of clinical epidemiology are also relevant for policy decision making as they can help to translate medical research results into an efficient and cost effective health care system. Hence we also participate in the public dissemination process in order to qualify decisions and decision makers.. ...

Psychiatric epidemiology is a field which studies the causes (etiology) of mental disorders in society, as well as conceptualization and prevalence of mental illness. It is a subfield of the more general epidemiology. It has roots in sociological studies of the early 20th century. However, while sociological exposures are still widely studied in psychiatric epidemiology, the field has since expanded to the study of a wide area of environmental risk factors, such as major life events, as well as genetic exposures. Increasingly neuroscientific techniques like MRI are used to explore the mechanisms behind how exposures to risk factors may impact psychological problems and explore the neuroanatomical substrate underlying psychiatric disorders. Sociological studies of the early 20th century can be regarded as predecessors of todays psychiatric epidemiology. These studies investigated for instance how suicide rates differ between Protestant and Catholic countries or how the risk of suffering from ...

CSTE spearheaded a national epidemiology workforce assessment effort in 1995 and compiled a guide to aid states in assessment their epidemiologic capacity. CSTE followed up this effort in 1997 with an assessment piloted in 10 states and in 2001 with the first Epidemiology Capacity Assessment. The ECA was the first national assessment of core epidemiology capacity in state and territorial health departments and a benchmark prior to distribution of approximately $1 billion in federal funding annually to states for emergency preparedness. CSTE administered additional ECAs in 2004, 2006, and 2009. CSTE conducted an epidemiology enumeration assessment in 2010 to determine the epidemiology workforce in state and local health departments.

An epidemiologist is a scientist who studies how diseases interact with populations. Most epidemiologists study the relationships between germs and people, but some investigate animal or plant diseases. These scientists study the factors involved in every aspect of a disease, including the start, spread, and treatment. Three primary types of studies/reports are performed by epidemiologists: descriptive, analytical, and experimental. In descriptive studies epidemiologists determine the physical aspects of existing diseases. For example, they might record the number of cases of chicken pox in a given locale. Analytical studies report on the cause/effect relationships in a disease, such as the reasons behind increased numbers of cholera cases in a flood ravaged area or a decrease in influenza cases due to a mild winter. In experimental studies, epidemiologists test hypotheses about treatment of diseases such as the efficacy (success rate) of a hepatitis vaccine or testing experimental cures for HIV ...

It is the economics which will in future drive the transition to a low emissions environment, not government intervention and carbon taxes. Never mind electric cars and LED light bulbs, peering into the future, we can already see a world of virtually cost free energy, of smart phones powered by radiant light alone, and of office blocks and houses that derive all their energy from the sun, the wind, and their own waste.. In terms of cost, longevity, and efficiency, all these technologies are showing almost exponential rates of improvement. Ironically, much of the cutting-edge research and development, from Elon Musks Tesla to thin-film solar cells and the latest in long-life battery storage, takes place in America.. On energy and technology, as on so much else, the Donald and his advisers are a mass of contradictions Is the new administration seriously proposing to give up the countrys world leading position in clean energy for the essentially already obsolete technology of the internal ...
The previous chapter described a prospective population cohort study as a prototype. By modifying one or another element of this prototype, this chapter constructs natural experiments, historical cohorts, and special exposure cohorts. To these three major variants a fourth is added-the clinical cohort-the purpose of which is to discover the determinants of the course and outcome of a disorder. This variant, close kin to the etiologic cohort, has been prominent in psychiatric epidemiology. The chapter gives an account of a cohort study that has evolved over a period of more than fifty years. Finally, it introduces a data set, the Prenatal Determinants of Schizophrenia Example (PDSE) study, for illustration in this and other parts of the book. ...

If youre not sure, just go ahead and get it," said Dr. Stephen Sears, state epidemiologist.. The national total - which increased from 18,719 cases in 2011 to 40,411 cases through the end of last week - is the highest number since 40,000 cases were reported in 1959, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. The increase is rooted in a variety of factors, Sears said, including the fact that the vaccine was made more pure in the 1990s to reduce side effects. Now, to be effective, the vaccine requires stricter adherence to the five-shot immunization series through infancy and childhood, and booster shots in adulthood.. "Some people are under-vaccinated because they missed a dose along the way," Sears said.. Other people are "anti-vaccination" because they dispute the safety of or need for immunization, he said. Still others dont like getting shots or dont know they should be getting booster shots as adults.. "Its really the right combination of factors thats causing ...

Christl Donnelly (MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling, Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London) An epidemiologists life on the edge (of the science-policy interface). Ebola, MERS, pandemic influenza and SARS have all posed serious threats to our health and economic wellbeing in recent years. In each of these cases, statistical (and more broadly mathematical) epidemiologists contributed to top-level policy discussions of diseases control policy development, implementation and contingency planning. The methods build upon foundations of epidemiological modelling and analysis of both human and animal diseases (HIV/AIDS, BSE, vCJD and foot-and-mouth disease, among others). The potential impact of such analyses is enormous, but it can be challenging to provide robust answers to key scientific and policy questions.

This book provides a practical guide to the understanding, interpretation, and application of the principles of nutritional epidemiology, set in the context of public health nutrition. Relating dietary and nutritional exposures to health outcomes requires a rigorous approach to measurement of both the key exposure and outcome variables of interest and also the associated measurement errors. Moreover, the analysis of such data requires appropriate statistical approaches that take into account sampling, measurement techniques, and the role of confounders in the context of specific study designs. The first part of the book brings a practical focus to the scientific concepts underlying study design with emphasis on design, planning, and evaluation of nutritional epidemiological studies; issues of sampling, sample size and power; and an understanding of the impact of measurement error, with practical remedies. The second part deals with the problems of measurement and interpretation of a variety of variables
Nutritional epidemiology uses epidemiological methods to examine associations between diet and disease. In the research group, we investigate whether dietary composition influtences the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes and cancer. We use large population studies, mainly the Malmö Diet and Cancer cohort, which was established in the 90s and consists of 28.098 individuals. Malmö Diet and Cancer have great opportunities to clarify nutrition relationships, as dietary data have high relative validity. Clear information about dietary influence is of great significance for public health because eating habits, in contrast to many other factors, can change during the life cycle. ...

Genomics offers to genetics and to epidemiology powerful analytic tools and information unprecedented in medical research. Searches for genetic causes now exploit this richness. Traditional designs are modified to achieve their goals more directly, and new designs are possible. Because the designs are still evolving, often by trial and error, any description of the present state may soon be outdated. This chapter focuses on a limited number of themes that should have enduring import. It describes some of the key challenges presented by the use of genomic information and then suggests a strategy to help address these challenges. ...

In December 2013, the French Parliament voted the 2014-2019 Military Planning Act (Loi de programmation militaire, or LPM), which included provisions on the extra-judiciary surveillance of the Internet: it not only increased the number of police and intelligence services with access to connection data, but the very scope of the data has also been widened (the law refers to the "information and documents", "as well" as metadata both ISPs and hosting service providers may have). Furthermore, this new legal regime comes with no preliminary control by the CNCIS, the independant administrative authority in charge of supervision of administrative interceptions of communications, an administration which remains largely underfunded. Finally, this law makes it possible to engage in realtime surveillance of communications, "by soliciting the network" of operators, which in this case requires preliminary control by the CNCIS, but still leaves wide open the threat of direct and massive data ...

I will answer that Tilly. You are asking questions that the Russian intelligence service were asking in the USA. But arent you Tilly from Paradise (Australia)? I do not mind if I help to improve people world wide to increase our ability to capture energy from sunlight via chemical means. Thats increasing entropy that can be done by plant life using photosynthesis to gain energy from the sun. Anyway theres no such thing as "unsaponified soaps", there is no such thing. As far as unreacted free fatty acids present in solution, I expect thats a relatively fast reaction compared to saponification. Saponifaction is making a soap from a triglyceride which has a slow reaction rate (weeks?). The hardest thing I recall from freshman college chemistry was calculating the pH of buffer solutions where, a strong acid or base is reacted with a weak base or acid, then calculating mathmatically the pH of the product in a particular concentration in pure water. Since used vegetable oil has only a small per ...

262 efficiency that epidemiologists should be chosen and their activities controlled by the same division. The Section on Communicable Diseases came into being to meet an emergency. It fulfilled its mission and justified its organization by its effective work in disease prevention during the war period. On November 1, 1918, it was transferred to the Division of Laboratories and Infectious Diseases as a result of the reorganization of the Surgeon Generals Office. 28 With the organization of this section an epidemiologist was assigned at each of the larger commands as an additional assistant to the camp surgeon. The first assignments were to stations where serious epidemics were then prevailing. An outline of what it was intended that epidemiologists should (10 was promulgated in a memorandum to division surgeons issued under date of January 8, 1918: 29 1. It is contemplated that an officer of the Medical Department, with special training as an epidemiologist, will be assigned to each camp and ...
