Perinatal Origins of Disparities Research at UC Davis

Perinatal Origins of Disparities (POD) Center activities focus on three core research threads: Biobehavioral Research, Epidemiological Research, and Research in Clinical and Community-Based Interventions.  Across these research threads, we employ innovations in epigenetics/genetics, biomedical engineering, big data science, and economic modeling to develop optimal methods for data integration and analysis.  This approach enhances our capacity to use biological data to personalize interventions and to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of our approaches to promote health system integration and health policy change.
