YSPH Study Centers

  • Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program - a large and diverse program of research that is part of the Yale Cancer Center. Ongoing research seeks new knowledge that aids in the prevention of cancer, the detection of cancer in its earliest stages and for those patients who already have cancer, ways to reduce the burden of cancer, improve survival and reduce the risk of  recurrence. Research is largely population-based, with Connecticut serving as a population laboratory for the researchers.
  • Center for EcoEpidemiology- merges the boundaries between the medical and environmental sciences, and in so doing creates opportunities for research and training in the epidemiology of agents affecting both human health and the natural environment.
  • Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) - provides support for the conduct of research aimed at the prevention of HIV infection and the reduction of the negative consequences of the disease in vulnerable and underserved populations nationally and abroad, as well as research on related legal and policy issues. CIRA also houses a domestic and several international training programs in HIV prevention.
  • Center for Perinatal, Pediatric & Environmental Epidemiology (CPPEE) - conducts population-based studies concerning the health and well-being of pregnant women, their newborns and infants; broader environmental influences on the health of older children and adults; and the study of relationships between the health of a pregnancy and subsequent adult health, sometimes called "life course" epidemiology. 
  • Collaborative Center for Statistics in Science (C2S2)- fosters collaborations involving statistical methods and technologies in any aspect of scientific research, particularly for understanding disease etiologies and is developing treatment and prevention strategies. In addition, this group is developing and implementing flexible and powerful approaches to the analyses of complex data including longitudinal data with multi-dimensional responses, neuroimaging data, genetic and genomic data. 
  • Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) - The CARE mission is translating scientific breakthroughs from the bench to the bedside by bringing research discoveries into the community. To accomplish this, CARE strengthens existing community-university partnerships, promotes rigorous community-based research and disseminates research findings directly to the community.
  • Connecticut-Rhode Island Public Health Training Center (CT-RI PHTC) - Connecticut-Rhode Island Public Health Training Center (CT-RI PHTC) was established in 2011 to provide continuing education to the public health workforce, support experiential learning opportunities for students in public health and foster collaboration between academia and the community to address public health problems. In partnership with practice organizations and academic programs in Connecticut and Rhode Island, this Center at the Yale School of Public Health brings together key stakeholders to improve the workforce and the health of communities. Our academic partners include Southern Connecticut State University, University of Connecticut and Brown University.
  • Emerging Infections Program (EIP)- a joint effort between the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The goals of the EIP are to assess the public health impact of emerging and re-emerging infections and to evaluate methods for their prevention and control.
  • Global Health Initiative (GHI) - a major initiative of the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale and serves as an umbrella for faculty and students from across the university. The GHI has fostered the development of more than a dozen new global health courses as well as a Global Health Certificate program for graduate students and the Global Health Fellows
    Program for undergraduates.  
  • Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI) - The mission of GHLI is to develop the next generation of global health leaders at Yale and around the world through innovative educational, training and research programs to strengthen health systems and ensure health equity and quality of care for all. GHLI supports health leaders to improve the performance of health systems through leadership development, quality improvement programs, and health systems research.
  • Institute for Social and Policy Studies Health at Yale - brings together scholars from across the university who are focused on developing policy-relevant research that can improve health, strengthen health care systems and enhance the way health care is delivered.
  • Keck Biotechnology Resource Laboratory -  provides genomic, proteomic, bioinformatics, biostatistical, and high performance computing technologies to hundreds of Yale and non-Yale investigators whose research otherwise might not benefit from the highly sophisticated and expensive instrumentation upon which biological and biomedical research is increasingly dependent.    
  • John B. Pierce Laboratory - a multidisciplinary research institute devoted to studying the ways biological systems interact with their environment, especially the 'built' (constructed) environment, and with the consequences of these interactions for human health and well being.  
  • The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center (PRC)- established in 1998 as part of a network of 37 academic/community partnerships funded by the CDC. This collaboration between the Yale School of Public Health and Griffin Hospital is the only center based in a hospital. The primary focus of the PRC is diabetes and obesity prevention. It also runs studies in its vascular lab and Complementary and Alternative Medicine through its affiliation with the Integrative Medicine Center at Griffin Hospital. 
  • Yale Program on Aging - encompasses a number of multi-disciplinary research initiatives, including the Claude D. Pepper Older American Independence Center, the Yale Health and Aging Project, falls and injury prevention projects, and studies of disability, dementia, hospitalization end-of-life care and patient preference. 
  • Yale Center for Analytical Sciences (YCAS) - brings together existing academic strengths in biostatistics, epidemiology, health economics, and health services research at the School and collaborative staff to provide expertise for the design, conduct and analysis of health and health care studies, methodological development and education and training to Yale and the extended research community. 
  • Yale Climate and Energy Institute - seeks to understand Earth’s climate system and energy resources, and the ecological and social consequences of changing climate and energy regimes. Interdisciplinary research and teaching supported by YCEI aim at helping the world to mitigate and adapt to climate change, while satisfying its future energy needs, with practical solutions and policies that can be implemented at local, regional or global levels.
