In addition to several research programs led by our faculty members, the School of Public Health is home to three research centres.

The Injury Prevention Centre (formerly known as the Alberta Centre for Injury Control & Research), Community-University Partnership, and the Centre for Healthy Communities each bring distinct strengths and provide leadership in research and community engagement for today's emerging researchers and practitioners.

The Centre for Healthy Communities

The centre works with governments, organizations, and communities to generate and support knowledge that enables community action to address the root causes of ill health and enhance wellbeing. They also collect accurate data and research the effects of these factors on our communities to inform the best infrastructure, program, and policy mix to maximize health outcomes and address systemic inequities that create unfair conditions and unequal opportunities for health.

The Community-University Partnership

The Community-University Partnership (CUP) is a unique collaboration among community members, researchers, practitioners, community organizations, funders, and policy makers. For over 20 years, community based, participatory methods have been central to CUP’s research approach. Collaborations between researchers and partners create and mobilize evidence to improve practices, programs, and policies that support thriving and healthy children, youth and communities.

The Injury Prevention Centre

Since 1998, the Injury Prevention Centre has worked with academics, students, practitioners, communities and governments to make Alberta a safer place. Injuries cost Albertans $7.7 billion each year. With evidence-based research and in consultation with stakeholders, the Centre develops programs and resources, initiates awareness and educational campaigns, provides grants, and advocates for policy and legislation that improve wellness through prevention.
