The Center for Pharmacoepidemiology Research and Training (CPeRT) was founded in 2012 as a center within the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB). Its mission is to:
• Provide an intellectual home for pharmacoepidemiology at Penn
• Promote the conduct of applied and methodologic pharmacoepidemiology research
• Foster training of the next generation of pharmacoepidemiologists
• Expand number of Penn faculty members performing pharmacoepidemiology research
CPeRT members are leaders in the development and use of large administrative and medical record databases for studying drug effects. CPeRT is a center within the Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions about Effectiveness (DEcIDE) Network funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and a center in the FDA-funded Scientific Program to Support Epidemiology Investigations. CPeRT members also edit Pharmacoepidemiology, 5th edition and Textbook of Pharmacoepidemiology.
