MissionWe address major public health issues which are relevant to both Luxembourg and the international community. We carry out a number of epidemiological studies, clinical trials, and experimental investigations in key areas such as cardio-metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases, behavioural and nutritional aspects of chronic disease prevention, economic evaluations of health interventions.
The department is responsible for a range of public health consultancy activities and services such as disease registries. It relies on expertise from a number of disciplines (epidemiologists, clinicians, basic scientists, statisticians, methodologists, clinical trialists, translational researchers).
We envisage to foster interdisciplinary and translational research collaborations across the different units of the department, strengthen networks with national and international partners and stakeholders. We will strive to become a national training centre in epidemiology and public health research for the next generation of scientists and health professionals in these fields.
Head of Department
