Innovative Research


The most vital and path-breaking public health and social work research is being conducted at the Brown School and its research centers.

We are affiliated with 13 research centers and have faculty connections with numerous Washington University research centers. These centers, eight of which focus on public health, produce groundbreaking research on health disparities, health policy, health systems, and the prevention and treatment of chronic disease.

For you, this means access to the latest research, plus opportunities to work with faculty to explore your own research interests through special projects, independent study, research assistant positions, or research-oriented fieldwork.
