SWISS TPH: Cohorts and Long-Term Partnerships in Science

Long-term studies are an important instrument for public health and epidemiological surveillance.

They are essential for understanding risk patterns for chronic and infectious diseases and co-morbidities. In addition, cohorts form the basis for long-term scientific partnership and offer ample opportunities for career promotion. Swiss TPH engages in comparative cohort and biobanking activities with its national and international partners. Join us to see how and why these collaborations can be crucial for improving global public health.
