Faculty Networks

Fostering YIGH Faculty Networks ranks high among YIGH’s priorities. A YIGH Faculty Network refers to a group of Yale faculty members who coalesce to form a long-term, collaborative academic and/or research partnership centered on a thematic or geographic area. Faculty in a Network identify as members and share collective goals to forge new, interdisciplinary collaborations to tackle some of the most intractable issues in global health. YIGH provides administrative, structural and financial support to foster and nurture these Faculty Networks and help them pursue external funding and internal funding such as the Hecht Global Health Faculty Network Award.
Faculty are invited to join one of the established YIGH Faculty Networks across Yale University that bring together colleagues across different disciplines with a shared research interest to support and collaborate on research projects.

Please reach out to the Network lead/co-lead if you are interested in joining a YIGH Faculty Network.
