Gillings Innovation Labs

Alice Wang, Ph.D., pictured here, is a 2015 Gillings graduate and co-founder of Aquagenx, a social enterprise formed around research conducted through a Gillings Innovation Lab award to Dr. Mark Sobsey.

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.

Announcement of the Round 6 Gillings Innovation Laboratory awards is forthcoming. The Request for Proposals (RFP) for Round 7 will be announced in late 2017.
