Gillings Innovation Labs (GILs) engage in cutting-edge research, translation of interventions to high-impact settings, and development of novel technologies or methodologies for the improvement of public health, both locally and globally. GILs are innovative, interdisciplinary, and strive to achieve fundamental breakthroughs in public health. Funding for the Gillings Innovation Labs was generously provided by Joan Gillings and Dennis Gillings in 2007.
