Research within the Saint Louis University College for Public Health & Social Justice is built on strong partnerships among practice, academic and community partners.

The College is home to a number of centers and institutes dedicated to research, outreach, and educational activities ranging from promoting long term solutions to social problems through the Doerr Center to professional development for environmental health and safety professionals through the Center for Environmental Education and Training.

  • Conducts research on potential funding sources and matching that information to faculty based on their research interests
  • Collaborates with faculty in the development of ideas into grant proposals
  • Supports faculty with the preparation and submission of grant proposal packages
