The SERC is a distinct multidisciplinary population-based research center that provides training in applied quantitative research methods for undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students. The philosophy of SERC is to improve the health and function of disproportionately affected subpopulations based on empirical research.
The SERC contributes towards the collective improvement of health in people of color, and the underserved. We seek to conduct empirical, population-based research to discover discrete and interactive relationships associated with genetics, biology, and social factors and reduce health disparities.
Dr. Sharon K. Davis serves as the Director of the SERC. Dr. Davis was a Senior Research Scientist at Harvard School of Public Health in the Department of Health and Social Behavior and Director of the Center for Minority Health Policy Research and Disease Prevention prior to joining the faculty of Morehouse School of Medicine.
