CRESS is heavily involved in training the next generation of researchers in epidemiology and statistics.

Around 80 doctoral students are trained at CRESS. They benefit from a solid training programme (speed-meeting, annual doctoral students’ seminar, training courses organised by CRESS).

They all publish their thesis work as first authors in recognised scientific journals, including high-impact journals such as BMJ, Plos Medicine, JAMA Int Med, etc. They win prestigious awards such as the Chancellerie des Universités prize, the L’Oréal Women for Science Young Talent Award, the Young Scientist Award and the David Sackett Young Investigator Award.
