Innovative approaches to research design, statistical and epidemiological analysis, and complex data management are critical to address today’s opioid epidemic. The Research Core is a locus of excellence for investigator-initiated substance use policy and community-level research and will ensure the highest scientific and ethical standards in all PHIOS projects.

PHIOS will develop a highly interdisciplinary scientific portfolio to address priority areas for the future of policy and health interventions in ways that best serve the needs of its stakeholders and partners, and in ways that adhere to PHIOS’ vision of pursuing transformational research programs that are most likely to impact those affected by the opioid epidemic.
