The center

The Center for Epidemiological Research (CPE), which is now considered a national and international reference in life-cycle health studies, emerged on the occasion of the beginning of the first large birth cohort study in Pelotas (1982, 1993, 2004 and 2015) .

The CPE is formed by a group of excellence in research that is mainly dedicated to investigating the influence of factors inherent to the period of birth and the first years of life on the individual's health throughout his life.
