The Advanced Molecular Epidemiology program is designed for participants interested in the intersection of molecular biology and public health. The course covers the principles of molecular epidemiology, including the use of molecular markers in epidemiology, techniques for pathogen detection and characterization, and the integration of molecular data in epidemiological studies. Through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical applications, participants will learn to manage and analyze epidemiological data using molecular tools, enhancing their capabilities in disease outbreak investigation and control.


To provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the molecular aspects of epidemiology, focusing on how genomic and proteomic technologies contribute to the surveillance and control of infectious diseases. This program aims to develop skills in analyzing and interpreting molecular data, which are crucial for public health decision-making and research.

Program Objectives

  • Understand the fundamental principles of molecular epidemiology.
  • Learn to apply molecular and genetic methods to the study of disease patterns in populations.
  • Develop skills in data collection, management, and analysis specific to molecular epidemiology.
  • Gain expertise in interpreting molecular data for epidemiological insights.
  • Foster an ability to critically assess the implications of molecular epidemiological studies in public health policy and practices.
