Featured Projects

While Mailman School research touches every corner of public health, our efforts are aligned on these strategic initiatives that maximize the interest and knowledge of faculty who work collaboratively across departments, disciplines, and methodologies. 

Urban Health

By 2050, over 70 percent of the world’s population will live in urban areas—the Urban Health interdisciplinary initiative works to create healthy, sustainable cities. 

Food Policy and Obesity
