SpatioLab
科研空間


The SpatioEpi group conducts research on the epidemiology of infectious diseases and related conditions in a spatial context. To promote scientific exchanges, research outputs are published in journals and books, and presented in meetings and conferences. Training activities have also been developed to contribute to capacity building in epidemiology.

通過流行病學研究,SpatioEpi 致力探索傳染病及相關課題的空間動態,論文刊登在科學期刊及書籍,並在會議和研討會發表。此外,又舉辦培訓課程,藉以推動流行病學研究。
