Research at the School of Public Health is designed to create evidence-informed links between new knowledge and public health policy and practice. To achieve this goal, we engage in both curiosity-driven and community-driven inquiry, and are committed to productive knowledge exchange. We also collaborate closely with academic colleagues and non-academic community and government partners. In a typical year, our faculty members bring in $9-10M in research revenue and engage in over 150 research projects.
Core Areas of Research
Research in the School is informed by a variety of core disciplines in public health, including:
In addition to running productive individual research programs, faculty in the School of Public Health participate with colleagues and partners in a variety of teams, networks, and consortia. These larger research collaborations provide a multidisciplinary perspective on complex public health issues facing communities. Our researchers work with others to protect water supplies, prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer, build community capacity for health and wellness, and develop and evaluate health technology and health policies.
