Epidemiology, molecular biology, and public health
This chapter discusses the importance of molecular epidemiology in translating new genetic information from the laboratory to the community. It argues that to meet the demands of the 21st century, we must change the language and expertise of public health to include a stronger focus on molecular epidemiology and its applications for disease prevention. We also need actively to promote continuing education in human genetics, epidemiology, and public health for scientists, practitioners, educators, and individuals in the private sector. Leadership from graduate schools of public health is required to meet these challenges. Strategies for addressing this timely issue are discussed in the chapter.
