A Research Culture of Excellence.

Research is central to the mission of the UGA College of Public Health. Faculty continuously produce works of discovery published in prominent scientific journals, book chapters and technical reports.  Much of their work is funded by federal agencies to meet national and international scientific needs. Students have a role as well, learning from their faculty mentors about the research process and sponsorship while participating in the work as research assistants.

Learn more about the exciting research underway at the College of Public Health by exploring our research focus areas. If you’re a College of Public Health faculty or staff member in need of research project support, please connect with our grant experts in the College’s Office of Research.
