Public Health

In recent decades, scientists have successfully identified many risk factors for diseases and identified causes of the spread of diseases. Now the causal relationships are shifting into the spotlight of public and population health research. Factors that affect health usually do not occur in isolation but are causally linked.

One important research topic at the Institute of Public Health is aging. Aging is a topic that covers aspects of health services research, prevention, epidemiology and methodology.

The epidemiologic research at IPH focuses on nephrology, the cardiovascular system and neurology. By contrast, the health services research at IPH concentrates on the systems, structures and patient-oriented outcomes of the health care system.
