- Affiliate Application
InCHIP is charged by the University with helping to develop and further the research enterprise in the areas of health behavior, health behavior change, health intervention, and prevention at UConn, and with contributing broadly to these fields of inquiry. InCHIP accomplishes these ends, in part, by supporting InCHIP affiliate researchers in their work in these domains.
- Affiliate Services Menu
InCHIP serves as a nexus for investigators at the University of Connecticut and other institutions to stimulate collaborative partnerships for the development of major research initiatives in health behavior change. InCHIP has created a multidisciplinary network of more than 480 affiliate investigators with expertise in health behavior change and intervention. This network of affiliates spans several University of Connecticut campuses, representing nearly all Schools and Colleges within the UConn system, and it also draws from more than 60 other research institutions. The network enables InCHIP to assemble teams of investigators able to respond within short time frames to large-scale research funding opportunities as they arise.
