Registration for the course "Molecular Epidemiology of Chronic Diseases " by the Maastricht Molecular Epidemiology Expertise group (M2E2)has now opened.

The Maastricht Molecular Epidemiology Expertise group (M2E2) offers you a challenging five days course to grasp the essentials of molecular epidemiology: combining information from molecular biomarkers that are more and more often obtained with omics technologies with lifestyle and environmental factors, to understand disease occurrence and prognosis in population-based studies. The challenges faced in this multi-disciplinary endeavour are manifold. This course brings together the different fields of expertise involved in molecular epidemiological research in a comprehensive and integrated manner. Participants will be confronted with issues ranging from study design to statistical analysis, and interpretation of findings in the context of public health. Focus lies especially on methodological issues, with a variety of disease settings used as illustration.
