Our research

Supporting innovative ideas to create a healthier world.

Solving today’s most important health challenges - together.

Research is the foundation of public health. Without it, we can’t drive ideas forward. That’s why solid, innovative research is such a central part of what we do at Community Health Sciences. At all levels—and across the programs we support—our students learn the importance both of discovery and a variety of methodologies. 

With a truly interdisciplinary team comprising of members from a range of academic, professional and research backgrounds, we’re proud to help address community health challenges at home and abroad. 

We’re creating the next generation of community health innovators, and a strong research foundation is fundamental to that pursuit.
