Programs and Initiatives


Nevada INBRE, part of the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence, is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) program designed to help traditionally underfunded states build biomedical infrastructure. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is a partner institution of Nevada INBRE. The scope of UNLV INBRE focuses on:

  • attracting more researchers to engage in biomedical research at UNLV
  • mentoring junior faculty to conduct biomedical and translational research.
  • enhancing programs to train the next generation of biomedical researchers.

UNLV Health Law Program

The UNLV Health Law Program is a partnership between the William S. Boyd School of Law and the School of Public Health. The Program aims to create opportunities for faculty and students across UNLV’s campus and in our community to learn about the multiple connections between health and law.

Global Public Health and Implementation Science Initiative

The Global Health Initiative facilitates multidisciplinary collaboration among UNLV faculty, students and public health experts to reduce health disparity across the globe. This is accomplished this through implementation research, training, and program development in resource-limited settings, locally and globally.
