The creation of a public health research group at CEU is meant to encourage the development of an inter-disciplinary community of faculty and students with interests in human public health research:

- That can meet collegially and discuss research either planned or underway;

- That can promote greater understanding of public health as a research theme;

- That can identify opportunities for collaboration and cooperation between disciplines, scholars and students; and,

- That can foster an international perspective on public health issues.
