    About Centre of Epidemiology and Biostatistics
    The Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics is one of four Centres and an Institute that comprise the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. The Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics is at the forefront of a preventive health revolution.
