The Emory grant is one of 15 awarded by the NIH's Fogarty International Center to fund training in research areas related to non-communicable disorders, with the ultimate goal of producing locally relevant, evidence-based interventions.
"Non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease continue to ravage developing regions of the world, with a lack of trained clinicians and researchers compounding the epidemic," says Fogarty director Roger I. Glass, MD, PhD. "Awards from the NCD-Lifespan program will help break new ground by building chronic disease expertise where it's needed most."
The goal of the new Emory Implementation and Systems Sciences Institute will be to train health professionals and scientists in developing countries to help bring them to the next level of public health practice and leadership. Emory will help train 60 young professionals from Mexico and India to build their careers focused on designing and evaluating policies and/or interventions for NCD risk reduction. The program will also help build sustainable capacity at their home institutions.
