The Population Health Initiative (PHI) is an interdisciplinary research program housed in the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin (UT). The PHI provides project development resources for a highly productive community of population health researchers from across the UT campus aimed at facilitating the highest level of population health science research. Underlying the activities of the PHI is a culture that emphasizes the advancement of population health science through obtaining federal and foundation grants supporting large-scale research, and generating the knowledge base necessary to address the health needs of the population and reduce health disparities.
The PHI’s project development resources are aimed at supporting and extending UT faculty’s research agendas. PHI faculty are supported by active collaborators and mentors from a highly diverse set of disciplines to enhance interdisciplinary frameworks and methodological approaches necessary to tackle complex population health problems operating at the community, regional, and national levels. In addition, infrastructural resources are provided that are necessary to facilitate the development of innovative population health science research. These resources include:
