About

The Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH), an integral part of Notre Dame Research, builds on the University’s historical strength in infectious disease research while broadening the scope of our expertise to include:

  • Epidemiology
  • Molecular biology and microbiology
  • Computational science
  • Maternal, child, and community health
  • Genetics and genomics
  • Biochemistry
  • Non-communicable diseases
  • Social sciences

Our team of interdisciplinary researchers and their students holistically address health disparities around the world.

EIGH faculty recognize health as a fundamental human right and promote research, training, and service to advance health standards for all people, especially those in resource-poor countries who are disproportionately impacted by preventable diseases.

The EIGH is training the next generation of global health researchers and leaders through undergraduate, Master of Science in Global Health, doctoral, and postdoctoral programs.
