Our Affiliates

FRONTIER affiliates are UNC investigators with an interest in forging collaborations between basic researchers and intervention scientists to address outstanding questions in the field regarding “what interventions work best, for whom, why, and under what circumstances.”  Affiliates will be invited to attend forums where new ideas and collaborations will incubate. And they will have ready access to resources, events, and funding opportunities that will facilitate the development of proposals, papers, and science advocacy activities.

If you would like to learn more about FRONTIER or are interested in becoming an affiliate, please email dfishbein@unc.edu.
