The CIC-EC Reunion Island conducts and manages projects in clinical epidemiology that are made in 3 main research axes: chronic and metabolic diseases, infectious and emerging diseases, and development abnormalities.
Cohort studies with diagnostic, etiologic, and prognostic applications are in construction or currently exploited from samples constituted in hospitals or in general population. These studies serve as a guiding axis for each of the 3 axes for the CIC 2020-2024 research project.
Furthermore, the CIC has developed transversal competences in the implementation of intervention studies in chronic diseases (obesity diabetes,…) prevention, in the development of psychometric studies for measurements of self-perceived health and for the validation of measuring instruments like scale for cross-cultural and linguistic adaptations, and in pharmacoepidemiological analysis and care pathway studies from databases issued from SNIIRAM.
