Life course epidemiology is the study of how factors operating prior to conception (including previous generations), in utero, and during early and late life jointly influence later disease outcomes, such as breast cancer or depression. General analytical issues arise in this context because of associations among the factors of interest. These are due to common biological and/or social pathways as well as, for some, to their intrinsic time ordering.

The talk will review some of the most common epidemiological settings and data sources for this type of studies and discuss how to analyse temporally and causally related explanatory factors. Univariate and multivariate models will be compared and issues of data quality discussed.

This talk is part of the MRC Biostatistics Unit Seminars series.
