Our faculty’s research often evolves into influential public health policy and practice locally, nationally and globally. Moreover, our drive for research excellence creates a vibrant culture of learning for our students. Students come to us from all cultures and backgrounds, ready for an intellectual journey that will take them to new frontiers of public health research, practice and leadership.

Research Showcase

Showcasing Student Research

Each year, GW hosts Research Showcase, which is an opportunity for students, faculty and researchers throughout GW to share their research with the university community. The process begins about a month before when participants submit an abstract of current, ongoing or completed research for consideration. Once approved, participants have the opportunity to showcase their research with an online poster presentation with the chance to win monetary prizes. It’s a great way to network and gain experience presenting your research to both research and non-technical audiences.
