Welcome to the Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Treatment Science

Established on July 1, 2017, the Rutgers Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Treatment Science (PETS) was formed to perform and foster innovative, multidisciplinary science related to the use and outcomes of therapeutics and diagnostics in large populations.
