The Section for Epidemiology and Social Medicine (EPSO) has broad and complementary research profiles including both epidemiologic and qualitative methods.

Research areas include obesity, health-related lifestyle factors, social inequalities, social structures and social factors in health and disease. Other topics are: alcohol, migration, medicine use, absenteeism and global health.
