Populations & Public Health Research Program

Program Lead: Jeff Kwong
Program Coordinator: popadmin@ices.on.ca

The Populations and Public Health Research Program consists of scientists with diverse research interests in Indigenous health, the environment/housing, injuries/trauma, infectious disease/immunization and population health. Program scientists actively pursue the integration and use of novel data sets (e.g., immigration data, transportation data, air and noise pollution data, laboratory testing data) and methods (e.g., risk prediction algorithms, machine learning, causal inference, economic analyses) to conduct research on how best to promote health and prevent disease for all segments of the population.
