Collaborative for the Interdisciplinary Promotion of Health
The Office of the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences cordially invites all members of the UMBC community for a reception and introduction to CIPHER – the Collaborative for the Interdisciplinary Promotion of Health Equity Research, to be held on Wednesday, December 13 from 3-5pm in Fine Arts 427.
The CIPHER builds upon current university efforts to support interdisciplinary research activities by focusing on topics related to health equity, health promotion, and the elimination of health disparities. Its goal is to encourage new collaborations and support the development of innovative, high-impact projects that can garner external funding.
All members of the UMBC community are invited to learn more about the CIPHER, the exciting activities that are planned for the upcoming Spring semester, and a new initiative to provide summer support for interdisciplinary teams to develop pilot projects.
