Our faculty, staff, and students are engaged in a wide variety of exciting projects that have a significant impact on public health. Our researchers are engaged in a diverse array of research projects ranging from COVID-19 modeling and opioid use disorders to climate change, diabetes and metabolic health, maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, and mental health. This work spans issues in the local Atlanta community to global contexts—our faculty have projects in over 50 countries. Rollins has a large and comprehensive research portfolio (over $100,000,000 annually), with faculty receiving funding from a wide range of federal and non-federal sources.

The Office of Research at the Rollins School of Public Health facilitates faculty research, helps identify funding opportunities, enhances the quality of applications for extramural research support, stimulates inter-departmental research, and provides resources and support for faculty research programs. The business aspects of proposal submission (routing, budgets, etc.) continue to be overseen by the Research Administrative Services, but we work closely with their team to make the process as faculty friendly as possible.

Research at Rollins is driven by impact on our communities, be they campus, regional, national, or international. We encourage you to visit the Rollins News Center to learn about recent research news and to explore our faculty profile pages to get a sense of our faculty’s specific research interests.
