Centre for Clinical Epidemiology (CCE)

The Epidemiology Research Axis, under the direction of Dr. Samy Suissa, applies cutting-edge epidemiological methods to study the etiology, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of disease. Researchers also contribute to the improvement and innovation of epidemiological and statistical methods necessary for the rigorous conduct of this research, and are credited with over 100 publications per year, including many in top-ranking clinical and methodological journals. Its activities apply directly to clinical practice and cut across numerous disciplines.

The Axis is home to the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology, which was founded in 1992 as part of the creation of the network of Clinical Epidemiology units instituted across all McGill teaching hospitals. Its mission is to improve the health of individuals and populations through the conduct of clinical and epidemiological research.

The LDI is the national headquarters for the Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies (CNODES). Led by Dr. Suissa, CNODES has assembled top researchers from across Canada to undertake collaborative, multi-year studies to gauge the effects and safety of prescription drugs on those who use them. Although these medications have been approved for use by the public, there has been no way to determine their practical, long-term effects on consumers - until now.
