Other JI Projects

In addition to the projects that fall within the four disease programs of the Joint Institute (JI), other research projects that meet the overall mission of the JI have been funded through recent Calls for Proposals. Like the disease program research initiatives, these projects leverage the unique strengths of the JI institutional partners and advance global health through promising clinical and translational research studies.
