The limits of risk factors revisited: is it time for a causal architecture approach?

Epidemiology today stands at a juncture. Despite increasingly sophisticated methods and ever-greater pools of data, the core approaches inherent to, and the utility of, epidemiology are being questioned by a growing number of stakeholders. Big data, precision medicine, various -omics initiatives, technology-informed intervention, and other new research horizons leave open questions about where epidemiology does (and does not) fit in. Join Professor Sandro Galea as he discusses the opportunities causal architecture approaches provide to epidemiology as a field, as compared to traditional risk factor and other methodological approaches.

US epidemiologist Professor Sandro Galea from Boston University is visiting Sydney and Melbourne as a guest of The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre. This event is also supported by the Australasian Epidemiological Association and UNSW Sydney's School of Public Health and Community Medicine. Copies of Professor Galea's latest book Well: What we need to talk about when we talk about health will be available for sale at the venue. You can also order a copy in advance from the UNSW Bookshop www.bookshop.unsw.edu.au/details.cgi?ITEMNO=9780190916831
