We care about statistics that can improve the understanding of human health. We get our inspiration by interacting every day with researchers, clinicians, epidemiologists, and public health professionals. Taking care of the challenges is the chance we have to move forward.



We are team of scientists that aims to gather statistical and methodological expertise across the Department of Public Health Sciences (Karolinska Institutet) and Centre for Epidemiology and Community Medicine.


Our goal is strengthening the research capacity in epidemiology and public health and exploiting the richness and interdisciplinary work carried out within the Department. We have passion for statistics applied to life sciences. We like to learn and think with data. We like to share what we know and possibly solve problems.

The Strategic Research Area in Epidemiology (SFO-Epi).

We make it together

Sharing our knowledge and experience


We are involved in education of medical statistics within Karolinska Institutet. We organize workshops, seminars, and short courses on statistical methods. Given the important role of statistical software in medical research, we often teach both basic and advanced courses on statistical softwares (Stata, R).
