The Epidemiology and Statistics core is to maintain a list of epidemiologic data available at different GEoPD sites. It will serve to facilitate data harmonization across sites.
It will monitor the epidemiological literature, with a particular interest in gene-environment interactions, and will regularly provide updates on recent findings. It will also monitor the statistical literature for relevant methods that can be used within the Consortium.
Members of the consortium will also be able to consult the core for questions on study design, analysis, and presentation of results.
Core Leaders: George Mellick , Karin Wirdefeldt , Christina Lill , Alexis Elbaz
