The Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) was created in 1993 as an interdepartmental structure to link biostatisticians and a wide array of epidemiologists—including many clinical specialists—within the entity now known as Penn Medicine. Through its predecessor, the Clinical Epidemiology Unit, the CCEB has been actively involved in teaching and research focused on clinically-oriented and community-based epidemiology and biostatistics since 1978.
