Research & Centers
Collaborate with top public health researchers in the nation.
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 means having the opportunity to collaborate with some of the top public health researchers in the nation.
