Health Equity-Focused Research and Training

There is a growing critical mass of stellar UK researchers with health equity-focused research and training interested in joining forces. CHET is supported across the UK campus, with resources provided by the Colleges of Medicine and Arts and Sciences, the Markey Cancer Center, the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences, and the Office of the Vice President for Research

With a founding director and associate directors, professional staff, graduate research assistants, sixteen founding affiliates, and over 150 faculty affiliates across the seventeen colleges of the UK, CHET aims to enhance capacity of current UK researchers to effectively compete for numerous funding opportunities to conduct high impact health equity research.

CHET will also encourage research through pilot grant competitions, customized boilerplate materials, health equity grant review, and by supporting applications from other programs, centers, and institutes.
