Graduate programs and other affiliations
The QBS program was established in July of 2010 to develop, advance and support interdisciplinary education, research and infrastructure in the quantitative biomedical sciences including bioengineering, bioinformatics, biophysics, biostatistics, computational biology, genomics, epidemiology, proteomics, structural biology, systems biology and related areas.
This graduate program seeks to train the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists to engage in research in genomic, proteomic, cellular, and organ-based systems for the purpose of translating this knowledge into disease treatment and prevention.
The Cancer Epidemiology and Chemoprevention Research Program is a multidisciplinary interaction between laboratory investigators, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and clinicians, who work to understand the etiology and mechanisms involved in the chemoprevention of cancer.
The Center for Molecular Epidemiology is an Institutional Development Award (IDeA), funded by the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences, that is transforming the research capacity at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine by stimulating high impact research, and translating cutting-edge approaches to enhance human health discoveries.
The New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study is a study of pregnant women who use private wells. Emerging data indicate that exposure to relatively low levels of arsenic during pregnancy may adversely affect both the mother and child. The current study focuses on the effects of arsenic exposure during pregnancy on two major indicators of chronic illnesses prevalent in the US population - blood pressure (linked to cardiovascular disease) and glucose metabolism (linked to diabetes and risk factor for cardiovascular disease).
