Division of Epidemiology
The Division of Epidemiology in NYU Langone Health’s Department of Population Health discovers causes of disease and identifies persistent and emerging trends across diverse population groups. Our vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of people locally and around the world by advancing scientific knowledge regarding how genetic, environmental, and social factors affect human health; translating that knowledge into public health action; and training the next generation of scientists.
Our Educational Offerings
We offer an Epidemiology PhD Training Program through Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. The program provides mentoring and training in the theory and methods of epidemiology, including study design, measurement, and causal inference to examine the distribution and determinants of health in human populations.
We highly encourage applications from underrepresented minorities in science.
Learn more about the Epidemiology PhD Training Program, including the curriculum and how to apply. For more information, contact Robby Zehra, manager of graduate student affairs, at 917-362-0995 or email@example.com. Our student ambassadors are also available to provide a student’s perspective of our program.
Our Cohort Studies
Our cohorts include investigators from NYU Women’s Health Study and the Food and Microbiome Longitudinal Investigation (FAMiLI) Study. Data from these studies are used to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the causes of cancer and other chronic diseases in women, and how the roles of the human microbiome are related to various diseases.
The Division of Epidemiology is located at 180 Madison Avenue on the fourth and fifth floors. For general inquiries about the division, please contact Liz Clancy, MS, program manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-263-0333.
