Session 1 Epidemiology and Health Care :

Epidemiology is an information science. Through a variety of approaches, epidemiology generates information for decision making by health professionals working at all levels of the health care system. Public health research draws from a number of academic disciplines, including anthropology, history, economics, sociology and political science, as well as epidemiology and statistics. Yet, there continues to be tension between social and medical research disciplines, particularly in conceptualising health as a collectively owned right, in comparison with diseases and illnesses, which are individually measured and treated.

Session 3 Genetic Epidemiology :

Genetic epidemiology is concerned with understanding heritable aspects of disease risk, individual susceptibility to disease, and ultimately with contributing to a comprehensive molecular understanding of pathogenesis. The massive investment and expansion of human genetics, if it is to return value for the common good, must be integrated into public health functions. The human genome epidemiology network has been established to promote the use of genetic knowledge in terms of genetic tests and services for disease prevention and health promotion.

Session 4 Cancer Epidemiology :

Cancer Epidemiology represents the investigation of elements in responsible of the inception, metastasis and guess of different sorts of malignant growth. Epidemiological research discoveries on disease can encourage the detailing of appropriate helpful treatment techniques and preventive medicines for cancer. It is the exposure to specific chemical and physical agents is potentially one of the most important ways in which analytical epidemiologic methods can contribute to the knowledge of cancer etiology.

Session 5 Nutritional Epidemiology :

Nutritional epidemiology is one of the younger disciplines in epidemiology. This may be partially due to the difficulties in measuring diet as an exposure. Diet and physical activity are arguably the most difficult exposures to assess in observational research and are plagued by considerable measurement error. Hence we are all exposed, and the variation may be more subtle than with other, more distinct exposures such as smoking or use of hormone replacement therapy.

Session 6 Molecular Epidemiology :

Molecular epidemiology is a multidisciplinary field combining molecular biology methods and epidemiological design embracing also such fields as cell biology, biochemistry and statistics. It aims at developing molecular markers to aid in revealing exposures, setting diagnosis, detection of early disease, follow-up of treatment and individual susceptibility of diseases. In molecular epidemiology, research is done in many cases among healthy people with one of the main aims being to reveal individual risk, and studies are often genetic by nature. Consequently, there are important ethical aspects to consider on one hand to protect people, and on the other hand, to increase understanding of the positive implications.

Session 7 Cardiovascular Epidemiology:

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with the lifetime risk exceeding 60%. Major advances in cardiovascular epidemiology over the last 4 decades have improved our understanding of the pathogenesis of CVD, with the identification and treatment of several major risk factors. Thus, cardiovascular epidemiology is confronted by a dualism: unprecedented opportunities for new research directions amid a growing uncertainty about its potential value and a pressure to do more and be more accountable.

Session 8 Psychiatric Epidemiology:

The Psychiatric epidemiology has done little to illuminate either the etiology or the environmental factors that create mental illnesses. Because of the limits of its knowledge base, the policies stemming from epidemiological studies have served to justify the predominant ideological and administrative interests of psychiatrists, researchers, and policymakers. The lack of an adequate system of classification of mental illnesses has been the primary factor limiting the development of Psychiatric epidemiology and, consequently, its usefulness for developing effective public policy toward mental illnesses.

Session 9 Scientific Epidemiology:

Epidemiology has provided a scientific foundation for public health and disease prevention. Epidemiology has contributed to major scientific discoveries such as the relationship between cigarette smoking and common diseases. Yet, the observational nature of much of epidemiologic research has attracted criticism including excess expense, repudiated findings, that offer small incremental, knowledge, inability to innovate at reasonable cost, and failure to identify research questions with the greatest merit.

Session 10 Social Epidemiology:

The recent research shows that cumulative neighbourhood socioeconomic disadvantage was associated with increase in the odds of developing diabetes at middle age, with a dose-response association; those exposed to neighbourhood socioeconomic disadvantage for a shorter duration showed a less increased risk. The association remained after controlling for individual socioeconomic status. The results show that the effect of neighbourhood disadvantage becomes visible in childhood (poor diet), adolescence (low physical activity, increased prevalence of daily smoking) and early adulthood.

Scope and Importance of Epidemiology:

An important epidemiologic premise is that individuals with the same disease entity have similar causes of the disease, and show similar natural history of the disease and similar responses to treatment or intervention. Under this important assumption, observations in a population study which contains a large number of individuals with a certain disease can be generalized to patients with the same disease in a different set of people in the same background population or in people in a different background population. In this context, traditional epidemiology has contributed to not only the successful identification of major etiologic factors even without molecular sub-classification but also the development of prevention strategies, such as smoking cessation programs.

Another aspect of major contributions of epidemiologic studies to broader biomedical and health sciences is provision of study subjects and materials. Epidemiologic research typically requires intensive efforts to carefully select subjects from a larger population, compile information on environment, lifestyle, behaviour, health and diseases, collect biospecimens, and build a large database infrastructure. Such epidemiologic resources can become an enormous asset for transdisciplinary research, and provide a large sample of disease patients, which is more representative of the general population than a typical hospital-based convenience sample.

Accordingly, along with advances in computing, bioinformatics, genomic medicine and biomedical sciences, modern epidemiology has broadened to integrate these disciplines. This advancement has been opening enormous opportunities, including the evolution of molecular pathological epidemiology.
