CEU has specific expertise in epidemiological and biostatistical methods, particularly in life-course, cancer, clinical, occupational, and molecular epidemiology. The Unit has a long tradition in coordination of and participation in large national and international epidemiological studies. In particular researchers at CEU coordinate the Italian birth cohort NINFEA (Nascita e INFanzia: gli Effetti dell’Ambiente ) and the Turin centre of the Italian birth cohort Piccolipiù. Researchers from other UNITO Departments with specific expertise in economics and health inequalities will contribute to LifeCycle.
