Ways to get involved

We spark innovation at the interface of disciplines through creative team science and partnerships with practitioners and policy makers. This approach allows us to expand the impacts of our existing partnerships and fosters new strategic relationships that address both hidden and apparent, both long-standing and emerging, global health challenges.

Sign up to receive information about global health events at UB as well as opportunities to engage in global health research and education with our partners in Buffalo and around the world.
Each of our project teams—whether studying the effects of indoor air quality on neonatal health or developing solutions to country-wide drug stock outs—is comprised of researchers across disciplines working collaboratively with government officials, NGOs, and practitioners. What results is a comprehensive, solution-oriented process to improve equity in global health and well-being.
Our University scholars are advancing foundational science and developing innovative solutions to overcome socio-cultural barriers and achieve health equity. We regularly update a list of funding opportunities below for the benefit of our affiliated faculty and partners. Our Program Coordinator, Dr. Lisa Vahapoğlu, is poised to assist faculty with individual searches. Contact Dr. Vahapoğlu for more information.
The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE), supports faculty research that promotes the health and well-being of under-resourced populations by helping reduce the sources and effects of inequity. 
We invite guests from across the University and around the world to share their innovative research and practices which improve health and wellbeing for populations. Join us at one of our events.
The Community for Global Health Equity Graduate Assistants (GA) are available to support faculty research. This support is limited and dependent on our GA availability as well as match between faculty needs and our GA skills, duration and percent effort required, and potential for advancing collaborative scholarship by the faculty member. Should you need one of our student's support on a project, please fill out the application below.
The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE) seeks to foster novel scholarship that harnesses the power of transdisciplinary collaboration to address the complex sets of barriers to achieving global health equity.
