about

This groundbreaking work, now available in paperback, has helped to shape the emerging discipline of molecular epidemiology.Molecular Epidemiology has proven useful to epidemiologists unfamiliar with the terminology and techniques of molecular biology as well as to the molecular biologist working to understand the determinants of human disease and to use that information to control disease. This book demonstrates how molecular epidemiology utilizes the same paradigm as traditional epidemiology in addition to using biological markers to identify exposure, disease, or susceptibility.

About The Author

Dr. Schulte is an epidemiologist with interests in education, quantitative risk assessment, health communication, use of biological markers in epidemiologic research, intervention research, and genetics. In recent years, he has conducted extensive research on occupational cancer. He has focused on issues of dissemination of occupationa...

Editorial Reviews

"This book is an excellent review of the crucial issues related to the incorporation of new markers of exposure, disease, or susceptibility into epidemiologic investigations...This book is an excellent resource for all researchers involved in the quest to understand the determinants of disease and apply this knowledge to the maintenance of the health of the public."
