The UAB Scientific Community of Outcomes Researchers (SCOR) provides a physical and transcendental home to health services, outcomes, and effectiveness investigators and staff conducting mission-focused research. By cultivating a community of co-located like-minded scholars, structured and unstructured interactions facilitate the transfer of knowledge, promotion of synergies, and generation of novel questions, ideas and collaborations to advance science, wellness, and health, spanning prevention and treatment and diverse content areas.

Research training and professional development are central tenets of the SCOR, including dynamic interactions among inter-professional pre- and post-doctoral trainees, early career investigators, senior scientists and staff. An outwardly facing entity, SCOR works synergistically in conjunction with Divisions, Departments, Schools and Centers across the UAB campus and in collaboration with mission-aligned organizations across the country and around the world.
