Funding Opportunities

Institute for Public Health Opportunities

Public Health-Cubed

Public Health-Cubed (PH3) is a rapid seed funding mechanism for the Institute’s Faculty Scholars. The program nurtures novel ideas in public health research or education. It allows faculty teams to address major social problems too complex for a single disciplinary approach—and to pursue experimental ideas that might be too unconventional to attract immediate support from traditional funding mechanisms. More details.

Precision Public Health

Without a two-pronged approach – precision public health alongside precision medicine – we risk significantly underutilizing the full potential of precision medicine. The Institute for Public Health Precision Public Health funding opportunity is focused on research from multidisciplinary research teams that explores the potential power of precision public health to improve the health of entire populations.
