1. Cohort and registry studies with diagnostic, etiologic, and prognostic applications: these multiple data source allow the surveillance of pathology frequency and give a vision of its evolution on a large numbers of patients: heart failure cohort (EPICAL 2), hip and knee arthrosics cohort (KHOALA). The CIC-EC is working on the REIN registry for renal failure, the Lorraine Multiple Sclerosis Registry (RelSEP) and the EI Observatory for infectious endocarditis.

2. Evaluation of complex interventions and medico-economic evaluation: these research fields cover many specialties (cardiovascular, renal, inflammatory and metabolic diseases,…) and set up large-scale projects such as RESIST project (smoking cessation for apprentices students) or PRALIMAP-Inès project (obesity screen for adolescents from disadvantaged backgrounds).

3. Metrology and perceived health: this axe focuses in the development of patient reported outcome measurement scales and the psychometrics studies of it. A bank or PRO was developed at the CIC-EC and can be used by francophone researchers, it is the SeleQt platform
