From Our Investigators

Robin J. Mermelstein, PhD

“A richness comes from our integration of colleagues across disciplines, career stages, and interests.

“We welcome UIC researchers in the social and health sciences to join us at IHRP, benefit from our shared scientific and administrative expertise, participate in a vibrant intellectual community, and achieve their scientific ambitions.”

Robin J. Mermelstein, PhD
Molly Martin, MD, MAPP

“At IHRP researchers can collaborate to successfully plan, execute, and disseminate research… Access to the Methodology Research Core and the Data Management Core is among the Institute’s strengths.

“Departments try to build skills in grants management, database management, and analyses internally. Research usually calls for specialized skills not found in just one or two people. Each of IHRP’s scientific cores offers a range of skills and expertise in a single team, which makes a very important difference to my research.”

Molly Martin, MD
David DuBois, PhD

“I am a social scientist with a strong interest in applied health research. Since coming to UIC 15 years ago, I have conducted all of my research projects out of IHRP.

“I greatly value the Institute’s stimulating intellectual environment of like-minded colleagues who value both rigor and relevance in their work, the highly dedicated and skilled staff available to support all aspects of my research, and the comfortable ‘home’ that the institute provides for the day-to-day work of my research team.”
