Genomics, Disease Ecology, and Global Health

The University of Notre Dame's Eck Institute for Global Health is a university-wide enterprise that recognizes health as a fundamental human right and endeavors to promote research, training, and service to advance health standards for all people, especially people in low and middle-income countries, who are disproportionately impacted by preventable diseases.

The Eck Institute for Global Health is in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in West Africa suffering from this tragic and dire outbreak of Ebola. Though we have researchers on campus who are focused on identifying new ways to target the virus with drugs, immediate action in the currently impacted countries is needed:  the time to act is now.

Please consider a direct contribution to those organizations on the front line as suggested by our friends at ASTMH.
