Chronic Diseases Division (dMC)

Our mission is to contribute to the prevention of chronic diseases, particularly by producing academic research into cardiometabolic diseases such as heart disorders, diabetes and cancer, and by producing expert reports.

Questioning of dMC

dMC researchers study chronic diseases epidemiology and prevention. More specifically, their research and public health services deal with the following questions:

  • Which is the frequency of chronic diseases such as cancers and cardiovascular diseases? How do they evolve over time?
  • How to conduct the surveillance of chronic diseases? Which data source to use? And how to interpret these data?
  • Which are the risk factors and determinants of chronic diseases? Food/Diet? Health behaviours such as smoking? Environment? Genetic heritage? Social factors?
  • When should chronic diseases prevention be implemented? Before birth? In adolescence? In later years? Should there only be prevention for persons at risk or for the whole population? Which prevention methods have the best efficacy ?

Themes

These research and services deal more specifically with the following themes:

  • Epidemiology of cancer
    The aim of the Registre vaudois des tumeurs (RVT) (Register of tumours of the Canton of Vaud) is to collect information on all cancer cases of the canton of Vaud’s residents. It also works on the evaluation of screening programmes.

Funding and training

The dMC is partially funded by the State of Vaud, through the Service of public health, the CHUV and the University of Lausanne. It benefits also of research funding, notably from the Swiss National Science Foundation (FNS), the European Community and the Swiss Confederation. dMC researchers also carry out commissioned work according to the health needs of the Canton and Confederation. They also supervise the work of Master students, and MD candidates or life sciences PhD candidates in the field of epidemiology and public health.
