CPHI brings together students, trainees, staff, and faculty across the university in order to advance population health.  This is accomplished through:

Student Research: Providing research-focused public health students special access to research opportunities.

  • Graduate Research Assistantships
  • Master’s Capstone Projects
  • The Junior Scholars Forum: Bringing together early career researchers interested in public health and the social sciences. 

Community Engagement: Stimulating dialogue and generating creative ideas for expanding community oriented translational research, and evidence-based practice, in our region.

  • Healthy Library Initiative: The Healthy Library Initiative harnesses the power of public libraries to improve population health. This is an innovative collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania and the Free Library of Philadelphia.
  • Community Driven Research Day: CDRD encourages collaboration between researchers and community-based organizations (CBOs)/community groups who have research questions that they are interested in answering about community approaches to improving health outcomes.
  • Featured Research- Coming Soon! 

Pilot Research Opportunities:  Funding promising pilot research initiatives through an annual “Call for Proposals” for interdisciplinary public health research endeavors.
