Students will be introduced to the field of public health and epidemiology and its role in the healthcare and the disease prevention. At the biomedical level, students will learn about all factors influencing the organism in the environment and at the workplace. The course will focus on laboratory analysis of key risk markers from different components of environment and workplace, as well as beneficial factors of disease prevention.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (12.02.2021)

Students will be able to analyze various risk biomarkers from workplace, environment, water and food. They will be able to measure and analyze special analyses different from those done in clinical biochemistry laboratories or by automatic analyzers. They will be able to use special measurement instuments used in public health and epidemiology practice and analyze the results.
