About Our Organization

The Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) was created in 1993 to provide an interdepartmental structure linking clinical epidemiologists and biostatisticians within the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS). Through its predecessor, the Clinical Epidemiology Unit, the CCEB has been actively involved in clinically-oriented epidemiological and biostatistical teaching and research since 1978.

Together, the CCEB and Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology (DBE) provide consultation on issues of study design and statistical analysis within UPHS; facilitate collaborative research involving clinicians, biostatisticians, and non-clinician epidemiologists; and provide training in biostatistics and epidemiology. Now consisting of more than 500 individuals, the CCEB and DBE are the primary home for epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania.
