About Our Research
The Department of Maternal and Child Health is dedicated to both furthering the science of maternal and child health and to applying existing and new knowledge to the field. Our Department synergistically benefits from the research focus and capacity of the Gillings School and the MCH practice community.
We routinely work in close collaboration with domestic and global public health professionals, clinicians, policy and community leaders, academics, and a wide array of governmental, non-profit and private organizations. Our students and our MCH alumni play vital roles in developing and conducting research and in research dissemination.
