Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention

The Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention’s scientists contribute to efforts that prevent or more effectively treat some of the world’s most challenging health problems—including HIV, cancer, obesity, autism. The Center’s multidisciplinary, theory-based, cutting-edge, and internationally scoped work has involved faculty from almost every College and School at UConn. As a nexus for researchers, the Center stimulates collaborations resulting in major new funded research, totaling $100 million in external grants to UConn since its inception. Future initiatives will focus on obesity prevention and cancer control, as well as increasing work at the intersection of behavior and biology. The Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention’s research utilizes interdisciplinary team science, unleashing the remarkable resources of UConn, and resulting in significant positive impacts on public health across the globe.
