Clinical Epidemiology Unit

At the Clinical Epidemiology Unit (KEP), we combine clinical, epidemiological, and biostatistical expertise with the aim to improve the understanding and treatment of a broad range of medical conditions.

Situated at the Eugeniahemmet at the Karolinska University Hospital campus in Solna, the research at the Clinical Epidemiology Unit (KEP) is focused on translational epidemiologic studies in which register-data are often combined with information from questionnaires, hospital charts, and biosample-derived data to improve prediction of disease onset, treatment effects, and disease outcomes.  

KEP is a unit within the Department of Medicine Solna, KI, and at the same time part of the SLL organisation at the Karolinska University Hospital. We host the Research School in Epidemiology for Clinicians, a collaboration between the KI and SLL, and the Centre for Pharmacoepidemiology.
