Centre for Pharmacoepidemiology

The Centre for Pharmacoepidemiology (CPE) was established in 2005, with the explicit purpose to create a centre of academic excellence in pharmacoepidemiology, to meet the demands from stakeholders in society and industry for expertise and consultation in this field. The centre, which is still evolving, has since its start met the growing demands, both nationally and internationally, for data on drug safety, drug utilization and rational drug use, including pharmacogenetics.


Merry Christmas!
