Mission Statement: 

The Slone Center Office-based Research (SCOR) Network is a research collaboration between investigators at the Slone Epidemiology Center at Boston University and pediatricians and family practitioners throughout the United States. The primary goal of the SCOR Network is to perform studies of practical importance to the health of children in clinical areas most relevant to primary-care physicians. The network specifically provides the opportunity to study the epidemiology of pediatric health conditions in the community setting, to assess physician and patient attitudes and behaviors, and to test the effectiveness of interventions in real-world clinical practice.
