Life course epidemiology is the study of long-term biological, behavioral, and psychosocial processes that link adult health and disease risk to physical or social exposures acting during gestation, childhood, adolescence, and earlier or adult life or across generations (Kuh and Ben-Shlomo 2004).
Social epidemiology proposes to identify societal characteristics (like social class and human capital) that affect the pattern of disease and health distribution in a society and to understand its mechanisms (Honjo 2004).
Research in chronic disease epidemiology addresses the etiology, prevention, distribution, progression, and treatment outcomes of chronic health disorders, including pediatric-onset conditions like Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA).
