Research & Innovations

We are increasingly focused on translational research; that is, ensuring that the health research knowledge we generate has a direct impact on the public. Translating research into action to benefit society is a critical issue in the United States and globally. One of the School's strategic goals is to inventory and examine our projects and find ways to advance our translational research.

Our faculty members are leaders in their respective fields, which range from health and social behavior, maternal and child health, nutrition, biostatistics, and epidemiology to toxicology, infectious disease and vaccinology, and human genetics, among many others.

They are also the driving force behind the School’s diverse array of centers and programs. A few of the health and societal problems being addressed by our centers include: alcohol abuse, population and family planning, health technology, STD/HIV prevention, infectious disease, emergency preparedness, health care markets, aging, and traffic safety.

Our Research and Innovation can be seen in all the centres and projects that the school is participating in.
