Faculty Health Disparities Interest Database

As part of the Vice President for Research's initiatives to foster collaborations and additional research funding, this database of faculty interests in Health Disparities research has been developed. The faculty listed below provided the information on their research interests so that other faculty could find matches for their own interests and easily contact a potential collaborator. In the near future, this database will be expanded to include faculty interests in other areas of research. Faculty members not yet included in the database are urged to add their interests using the link provided below.
