Institute for Human Health and Disease Intervention (I-HEALTH)

Gregg B. Fields, Ph.D., was recently named the new executive director of FAU’s Institute for Human Health and Disease Intervention (I-HEALTH). Fields will lead efforts to develop interdisciplinary research by combining expertise across many FAU centers and colleges as well as forging strategic health care and research partnerships in the region.

I-HEALTH was created to advance health through pioneering research and practical applications. Under Fields’ leadership, the team is redesigning the health care infrastructure to create novel intervention programs to provide patients and the community with health care for everyday needs as well as the most specialized services for complex diseases, illnesses, and injuries. I-HEALTH also will focus on aging patient populations to provide unique care that is not available elsewhere in the region. In addition to developing clinical trials and conducting clinical and translational research, I-HEALTH will teach and train generations of health care professionals to meet South Florida’s diverse needs.
