About us


We build on past accomplishments with the inception of the Gillings Global GatewayTM. We harmonize and promote the School’s global activities in four interconnected areas: partnerships, research to implementation, global learning, and outreach and communications.


The Gillings Global Gateway allows us to build and sustain robust, strategic partnerships with academic institutions, governments and nongovernmental organizations. We will streamline internal processes so that we can respond more quickly and effectively to global funding opportunities. Learn more about our active partnerships here.


Research to Implementation

The Gillings Global Gateway will strengthen the School’s capacity to turn robust science into effective, real-world programs and meaningful policy action on a global scale. We will focus on critical global public health priorities for which the School has significant leadership strength and the potential to move from research to transformative solutions with sustainable global impact.
