This group ran until the end of the 2015/2016 academic year.
From the 2016/2017 academic year, this was replaced by a new epidemiology research group led by Katherine Broadfoot.
The epidemiology reading group discussed areas of interest within the field. Our meetings involved either discussing a given subject using book and article resources, or focusing on a specific interesting paper.
Listed below are some books and papers discussed in previous meetings.
