Twenty-one new GloCal fellows embark on a year of research
This month the tenth cohort of GloCal Health Fellows begins their year of research directed at finding answers to pressing global health issues.
The 2021-2022 GloCal fellows come from a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, neuropathology, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and geography. During their fellowships, these early-career investigators will study critical areas in global health, such as the treatment of HIV and its co-infections in disadvantaged populations around the world, tuberculosis, mental health, and climate change.
The GloCal Health Fellowship supports a 12-month, mentored research fellowship for investigators interested in studying diseases and conditions in developing countries. The fellowship is designed for US doctoral students, professional students and postdoctoral fellows from any University of California campus, as well as foreign postdoctoral fellows from affiliated international sites in low- and middle-income countries.
