The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility announced the recipients of the Global Health Seed Grants for 2022. Each of the selected projects exemplifies the CGHSR mission and goals of the Seed Grants program, including to advance equitable international research collaborations and build effective and innovative interdisciplinary health science research.
This year, CGHSR is supporting two projects with a strong interdisciplinary focus that span the globe and the University of Minnesota system.
From the Medical School's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, PI Kathryn Cullen has involved colleagues from the University of Minnesota Rochester and from the Weisman Art Museum in her work on mental health in Japan. And from the Department of Pediatrics, PI Beth Thielen will work with faculty and researchers from across the medical school as well as continuing longstanding UMN collaborations with Makerere University, Uganda.
