General Introduction

Studies within EPIC are usually conducted within the context of disease-specific Working Groups that cover the major cancer sites, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, mortality, and healthy ageing. Methodological research is also an important feature of EPIC. Further details on the activities within each Working Group, key studies, and relevant contact details are available on the Working Group pages.

External investigators are welcome to propose studies within EPIC. Further details on how to access data and biosamples are outlined in the Access section.
