Our four core areas of research reflect our greatest strengths and some of the most pressing topics for science, policy and practice in the years from birth to young adulthood.
Collaboration is a hallmark of the Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children & Families. To foster that interdisciplinary collaboration, four research cores have identified in part because they build on the college’s existing strengths and are broad enough to maximize the contributions of faculty from every area.
In addition to fostering collaboration, these developing cores were selected with the future in mind. They are ripe for new growth and will serve as catalysts not only for furthering the college but most importantly for advancing science and serving the public.
