The Integrating Special Populations Core facilitates research that promotes health equity for populations that have traditionally been under-represented in health research or excluded altogether, including:

  • Infants and children/pediatric populations (birth to 21 years)

  • Adolescents and young adults

  • Older adults    

  • People with disabilities and/or rare disorders

  • People who have been underserved or underrepresented in clinical research (e.g., African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, rural populations or populations with low socioeconomic status).
