Slone Epidemiology Center
The Slone Epidemiology Center is a public health research organization which focuses on studying the possible health effects of a wide variety of factors in adults and children. The initial focus on medication use has over the years been expanded to include behavioral, psychosocial, socioeconomic, environmental, and genetic factors. Our staff includes specialists in epidemiology, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, biostatistics, and computer science. Slone researchers are typically involved in all aspects of the studies they conduct, including design, data collection, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination. They use a variety of epidemiological tools, including case-control and follow-up studies, clinical trials, surveillance studies, risk management studies, and population-based surveys.
