  • The Social Epidemiology Research Center (SERC) is a distinct multidisciplinary population-based research center that provides training in applied quantitative population-based 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.  SERC conducts problem-focused research using primarily experimental methods to test and disseminate disease prevention and control findings to scientific, public health, and community-based audiences.  Collaborations exist with a broad array of public health and academic scientists, state and local public health departments, community leaders, and healthcare advocates.
