Research

Zilber School faculty are leading emerging research programs that address public health and health equity from the molecular to the societal levels. Current disciplinary expertise spans epigenetics; developmental neurobiology and immunotoxicology; social and environmental epidemiology; statistical genetics; public health bioinformatics; social and behavioral sciences; maternal and child health; and public health law and policy.

The Zilber School's newly completed, five-story LEED-certified main facility near downtown provides ample space for collaborative, interdisciplinary research and anchors one of Milwaukee's transforming historic neighborhoods. Additional approved dedicated wet laboratories on the main UW-Milwaukee campus will provide complementary space for cutting-edge, laboratory-based public health research. Information on featured research projects can be viewed on our Research pages by program: Biostatistics, Community & Behavioral Health Promotion, Environmental & Occupational Health, Epidemiology, and Public Health Policy & Administration.
