    Cutting-edge research to improve health equity in China and around the world

    Duke Kunshan University and the Duke Global Health Institute established the Global Health Research Center in 2013. The Center uses innovative approaches to research and solve important health and health policy challenges in China and around the world.

    The Global Health Research Center is built on the principles of scientific excellence and is establishing interdisciplinary, mutually-beneficial collaborations with researchers from China.  It will host national and  international conferences to disseminate research findings and encourage dialogue among scientists, professionals, policy-makers and other key stakeholders engaged in global health.
