About Centre for Clinical Epidemiology
The Centre for Clinical Epidemiology, which was founded in 1992 as part of the creation of the network of clinical epidemiology units across all McGill teaching hospitals. Its mission is to improve the health of individuals and populations through clinical and epidemiological research. Investigators in this area focus on cardiovascular, infectious and rheumatic diseases, as well as reproduction and cancer.
The LDI is the national headquarters for the Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies (CNODES). CNODES has assembled top researchers from across Canada to undertake collaborative, multi-year studies to gauge the effects and safety of prescription drugs on those who use them. Although these medications have been approved for use by the public, there has been no way to determine their practical, long-term effects on consumers - until now.
