Molecular epidemiology is poised to make ever-greater contributions to understanding the genetic and environmental causes of human disease. Both agnostic and hypothesis-driven approaches to both categories of risk factors could lead to leaps in our understanding. Investment in new methods and approaches will be needed, however. Strong links between population scientists, bench scientists, bioinformaticians and engineers must also be fo rged if progress is to be made.
