• integrative
  • Ogino has introduced several new paradigms and research frameworks, including "the GWAS-MPE approach", "the unique tumor principal", "the unique disease principle", "the etiologic field effect model", "the integrative lifecourse epidemiology - MPE model", "the pharmaco-MPE model" and "the immuno-MPE model", all of which are related to the field of MPE. (wikipedia.org)
  • discipline
  • Researchers Frank Pega and Ichiro Kawachi from Harvard University have suggested that this may lead to the new discipline of Political Epidemiology, which is more policy-applied in that it identifies effective and cost-effecfive social interventions for government action to improve health equity. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is a scientific discipline that encompasses the development of molecular and genetic approaches to the diagnosis and classification of human diseases, the design and validation of predictive biomarkers for treatment response and disease progression, the susceptibility of individuals of different genetic constitution to develop disorders. (wikipedia.org)
  • biology
  • As the application of dynamical systems theory to molecular biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Their model described a cellular function emerging from the interaction between two different molecular components, a potassium and a sodium channel, and can therefore be seen as the beginning of computational systems biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • methodologies
  • Social epidemiology draws on methodologies and theoretical frameworks from many disciplines, and research overlaps with several social science fields, most notably economics, medical anthropology, medical sociology, health psychology and medical geography, as well as many domains of epidemiology. (wikipedia.org)
  • determinants
  • Although health research is often organized by disease categories or organ systems, theoretical development in social epidemiology is typically organized around factors that influence health (i.e., health determinants rather than health outcomes). (wikipedia.org)
  • analyze
  • Thus, gel electrophoresis techniques like pulsed-field gel electrophoresis can be used in molecular epidemiology to comparatively analyze patterns of bacterial chromosomal fragments and to elucidate the genomic content of bacterial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Techniques are numerous but include quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), multiplex PCR, DNA microarray, in situ hybridization, DNA sequencing, antibody based immunofluorescence tissue assays, molecular profiling of pathogens, and analysis of bacterial genes for antimicrobial resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Analytic epidemiology includes two types of studies: observational studies, such as case-control and cohort studies, and experimental studies which include clinical trials or randomized clinical trials. (wikipedia.org)
  • Social epidemiology can therefore address any health outcome, including chronic disease, infectious disease, mental health, and clinical outcomes or disease prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Epidemiology has helped develop methodology used in clinical research, public health studies, and, to a lesser extent, basic research in the biological sciences. (wikipedia.org)
  • methodology
  • Pharmacoepidemiology benefits from the methodology developed in general epidemiology and may further develop them for applications of methodology unique to needs of pharmacoepidemiology. (wikipedia.org)
  • science
  • The science of epidemiology has matured significantly from the times of Hippocrates, Semmelweis and John Snow. (wikipedia.org)
  • He received a Master of Science in Epidemiology degree from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in 2010, and then subsequently obtained a secondary faculty appointment (Associate Professor) in 2012, promoted to Professor at that school in 2015. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • The term "epidemiology" appears to have first been used to describe the study of epidemics in 1802 by the Spanish physician Villalba in Epidemiología Española. (wikipedia.org)
