Global Health Research

We work alongside partners - both close to home and around the world - to support prevention, treatment, and interventions for conditions that cause significant health burdens among underserved populations. 

Our faculty are addressing today’s most critical health issues, with research ranging from tobacco control, COVID-19, emerging infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis, to non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetes.
