Julius-Maximilans Universitaet Wuerzburg

The Institute of Clinical Epidemiology and Biometry (ICE-B) is representing the disciplines clinical epidemiology and biometry in research and teaching for the Julius-Maximilian-University of Würzburg. The main research areas of the ICE-B comprise clinical research, clinical epidemiology and health services research.

The ICE-B has also a strong methodological focus on the development and application of new methods in the field of clinical epidemiology and biometry such as: new methods for confounder control in observational studies; raising the research profile of register studies; and developing new methods for implementing clinical research into clinical care.

The ICE-B consist of a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, biostatisticians, clinician scientists, public health specialists and data scientists providing structural measures for planning, coordinating and analysing large scale observational population-based studies, patient cohorts, and health services research studies.

The ICE-B is involved in various major national and international multicenter patients-oriented studies in cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases funded by the German Ministry of Research and Education (e.g. SICFAIL, EUROASPIRE IV), the European Union (e.g. EIS), the industry (e.g. RASUNOA-Prime) and foundations (e.g. EUROASPIRE V) with a strong focus on prognostic and diagnostic studies of different complexity at the interface between heart diseases and stroke.
