Hands-on experience is not all you’ll gain as a student at ColoradoSPH. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with award winning faculty experts on national research aimed at population-level disease prevention, health promotion, health policy and health outcomes.
With research grants funded from federal, state and private sources constantly growing, faculty members at ColoradoSPH are progressively researching a variety of national public health initiatives including:
- Genetic Epidemiology
- Pediatric Diabetes
- Cancer Prevention
- Environmental & Occupational Health
- Community Development & Urban Planning
- Gas & Oil Developments

Our faculty’s research efforts inform and enrich the education offered to you at ColoradoSPH while providing continued opportunities for collaboration. These efforts by you, your professors and the nation find solutions to the pressing health problems that confront us daily and strengthen health in our communities here in Colorado and across the United States.
One national research example is the National Children’s Study, funded by the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Dana Dabelea, the study’s principal investigator at ColoradoSPH, looked at the factors that influence the development of autism, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, birth defects, diabetes, asthma and obesity in children from birth to the age of 21. Visit the National Children's Study website to learn more about this national effort.
