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 FY2020, projects led by our faculty received $19.9M in funding from federal, state and private sources to tackle tough issues including: cancer, opioid addiction, environmental health, and health disparities in rural communities, throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and across our nation.


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.

Office of Scientific Writing

Office of Scientific Writing

The CPH Office of Scientific Writing can provide editing and other assistance to CPH faculty for their grant, manuscript, and other scientific communication efforts. Because the OSW has limited resources, requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis and grant applications will be given priority over other requests. Please keep in mind that technical editing and other services we provide can be very time consuming. Involving the OSW sooner rather than later and allowing sufficient time before your deadline will allow us to provide more and better help. This is especially important if you're requiring iterative edits (e.g., help with organization and cohesiveness first, help with mechanical editing second).

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Claas at
