Grants Support Inquiry into Global Cancer, Planetary Health and Other Challenges

With funding from Duke’s Provost and Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, two Duke Global Health Institute-led teams have initiated new multidisciplinary collaborations.

Megan Huchko, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology and global health, will lead a team focused on developing an intellectual community at Duke to identify technologies, programs and health policy changes that can address disparities in reproductive tract cancer outcomes in women worldwide.

Another team, led by William Pan, assistant professor of global environmental health, will explore the planetary health initiative in the context of other movements across other disciplines, to identify steps Duke should take to address interdisciplinary challenges in science, policy and global sustainability.
