Health & Well-being
CIFAR connects health experts to the latest research.
Modern health science is revealing how our health is shaped not just by genetic variation and the intricacies of our biology, but also by the microorganisms that share our bodies and the socio-economic conditions in which we were raised.
In this rapidly evolving and critically important sector, where advances save lives, CIFAR works with a diverse range of health-related communities to connect them to the latest insights from our research programs.
Our on-going, cross-sectoral conversations between CIFAR fellows and leaders in medicine, public health, international development, the biomedical industry, and civil society are improving the health and well-being of people around the world.
