Section for Global Health Training for Health Professionals
With a focus on capacity building, NYU Langone’s Section for Global Health provides research training to learners at multiple levels of the university system and at partner institutions. To build global capacity, our faculty collaborate with investigators and trainees in low- and middle-income countries to build capacity across multiple health research areas.
Stroke and Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program
The Stroke and Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program (S-CaRT) trains Ghanaian and Nigerian investigators to conduct research related to stroke prevention and cardiovascular risk reduction. This program, funded since 2011 by the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center, aims to increase the number of researchers and health services professionals in sub-Saharan Africa to manage the region’s growing noncommunicable disease burden. Trainees are prepared to establish sustainable research capacity and pursue innovative projects targeted at stroke and cardiovascular disease prevention.
The NYU Langone S-CaRT faculty leader is Olugbenga G. Ogedegbe, MD, MPH.
Global Health Science Lab
The Global Health Science Lab is housed in the Section for Global Health. This lab brings together faculty, trainees, and students from the Section for Global Health, other schools and colleges within the NYU system, and other partner institutions, to advance the field of global health research and improve population health globally.
Our vision is to advance innovative and sustainable health globally. We create innovative solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of populations around the world, educate the next generation of global health science researchers, and engage with partners to develop, implement, and sustain locally led research programs and policies.
Our NYU Langone faculty contact is Rajesh Vedanthan, MD, MPH.
