Global Partners

Creating Global Opportunity for Research Exchange and Learning

Internationally, scientists are aiming to solve complex health issues in an increasingly connected world. Researchers in the lab studying the basic biological mechanisms of disease pathology or human-pathogen interactions must understand the nuances and complexities of disease intervention and prevention, epidemiology and the cultural, political and equity influences of healthcare delivery and distribution.

Researchers and practitioners working directly with patients benefit from understanding research aims, methodology and best practices. I●CARE bridges these disciplines to develop truly collaborative, international research programs.

We partner with research institutions, healthcare sites and educational centers to marry the best of basic and translational research to achieve novel, functional scientific outcomes.
