Research & Centers
The UK College of Public Health has a robust research agenda that emphasizes collaboration within our faculty and with external institutions and agencies. We are also home to seven college-based centers. In FY 2017, projects led by our faculty received $12.7 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health to tackle tough issues including: cancer, opioid addiction, and health disparities in rural communities.
Our faculty partner with colleagues across the University of Kentucky, as well as at other research-intensive universities. Being a student in our College means having the opportunity to collaborate with some of the top public health researchers in the nation.
