Research and Practice

Building on more than 75 years of groundbreaking achievements that shape policy, education and services around the world.

At Berkeley Public Health, we take pride in our rigorous transdisciplinary research into the determinants of health and our groundbreaking achievements that shape policy, education and services around the world. Our faculty and students drive action that improves health outcomes for communities, locally and globally.

Our focus on translational research ensures that the health research knowledge we generate has a direct impact on the public. Translating research into practice to benefit communities is integral to our mission: within our school, among our colleagues across the Berkeley campus, and with our collaborators around the world. We seek to foster collective research efforts that have the greatest population health impact, which fundamentally requires studying health equity for the most vulnerable in our communities, accounting for global change, and identifying research and practice methods with the most effective and far-reaching impacts.
