The Research Mission of the University of Illinois Center for Global Health is to improve the health of populations around the world by conducting collaborative, trans-disciplinary research that addresses critical global health threats.  To achieve this, we work to:

  • Establish an infrastructure for identifying and applying for funding opportunities that support global health research
  • Develop collaborative projects with researchers from the six health sciences colleges that focus on global health issues
  • Build on existing research projects to seek additional funding
  • Collaborate with the existing WHO Centers at UIC to create new research initiatives
