Tulane University

Office of Global Health


The mission of the Tulane Office of Global Health (OGH) is to foster interdisciplinary, collaborative research opportunities for faculty across Tulane University, and to promote global health research training opportunities for Tulane students.

The Tulane Office of Global Health is a university-wide center, with representation from across Tulane University, including all of the schools and colleges: Newcomb-Tulane College, the School of Architecture, the A.B. Freeman School of Business, the School of Liberal Arts, the School of Medicine, the School of Professional Advancement, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, the School of Science and Engineering, and the School of Social Work.

Additionally, the Office of Global Health has collaborative relationships with international organizations from a variety of countries, including Argentina, China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Honduras, Peru, and Zambia.

The LAUNCH program is a 12-month mentored research training program for pre- and post-doctoral candidates and is sponsored by the Fogarty International Center, as well as several individual NIH institutes, including the National Cancer Institute and the Office of Research for Women's Health.

The Tulane Program to Advance Representation in Minority Health Research (Tulane ARMHR) builds on the foundation of the Tulane-Xavier MHIRT Program to provide mentored research training experiences to graduate students from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical, behavioral, and social science research, including minority groups based on race/ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, and socio-economic disparities.

The Resident Initiative in Global Health at Tulane (RIGHT) program will provide skills and training to residents interested in a career path in global health.
