PM Research USC Department of Preventive Medicine

Research

Research is at the very core of the department’s goals to promote the public health of diverse populations in California and across the Pacific Rim. This is also reflected in the department’s undergraduate and advanced education and training programs.

Researchers in the Department of Preventive Medicine have been recognized worldwide for their studies in biostatistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, environmental health, health behavior, and prevention, detection and treatment methods. They are widely sought for peer review and advisory activities and participate in diverse committees of the National Institutes of Health, the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.

In addition to the groundbreaking research within each division, many faculty collaborate with the USC Institute for Global Health and the Institute for Health Promotion & Disease Prevention.
