Our Partners

Partnerships are at the core of our work at the Center for Dissemination & Implementation Science. 

Our goal is to serve as the connective tissue for all implementation science activities happening across Northwestern University. As an affiliate of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM), we collaborate with other IPHAM centers to advance public health and medicine research. We are also deeply committed to partnering with other institutes, centers, departments and teams throughout Northwestern to increase the impact of all our work.

Beyond Northwestern, our projects are conducted in partnership with health systems, policymakers, public health officials, funding organizations and community practices.

Contact us for opportunities to collaborate, and learn more about our key partners below.
