Our research is conducted collaboratively with research-intensive universities and healthcare institutions. Active partners include investigators at Yale University, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine jointly based at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and The University of Iowa College of Public Health.
