More than 68 percent of deaths globally result from cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and lung disease, according to the World Health Organization -- more than 28 percent from infectious diseases. To meet the world’s diverse health challenges and community needs, Arizona State University has recruited leading medical researchers and health policy analysts, and forged working alliances with institutions and medical partners.
ASU's world-class research faculty, centers and institutes bring together thought-leaders in science, humanities, social sciences, health and engineering to spearhead new approaches to target and treat cancers, understand the spread, evolution and emergence of infectious disease, personalize medicine, and devise strategic interventions for obesity, Alzheimer's, and mental health challenges.
Whether it is the development of diagnotics or wearable technologies to rapidly detect cancer, or a novel vaccine delivery for Ebola, ASU is striving to advance knowledge and leverage a transdisciplinary approach to health into 21st-century solutions for diverse local and global communities.
