Craniofacial Outcomes Research and Epidemiology (CORE) Group

The Craniofacial Outcomes Research and Epidemiology (CORE) group unites researchers around a shared vision: to collaborate on discoveries that advance our understanding of the causes of craniofacial conditions and to improve healthcare for children with conditions affecting the head and neck.

The CORE team conducts clinical research that aims to understand how and why craniofacial conditions occur. The team is working to identify treatments that lead to improved outcomes for children with craniofacial conditions. The CORE team is partnering with individuals and families with craniofacial conditions to identify areas for future research that are of mutual interest to the families and our team.

While projects under the CORE umbrella are tied to individual researchers, the CORE collaboration allows researchers to get input and feedback from colleagues with different areas of expertise. This partnership allows investigators to draw on one another's skills in areas ranging from healthcare experience and outcomes research to genetics to 3-D facial imaging, sparking a comprehensive approach that helps unravel all facets of these complicated conditions.

CORE team experts have decades of craniofacial research experience, giving them specialized insight that helps investigators design and conduct studies in ways that maximize success.
