The Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) at Northwestern University, founded in 2015 and housed on Northwestern’s Chicago campus, is the nation’s first university-wide center focused exclusively on LGBTQ+ health. It provides leadership and infrastructure that promotes innovative, multidisciplinary research to improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities. The Institute provides unique opportunities for exceptional research and training for the next generation of LGBTQ+ scholars, and it utilizes innovative modalities to disseminate knowledge widely to the LGBTQ+ community, the public at large, scholars, service providers, educators, and policymakers. Currently, ISGMH has 20 core faculty, over 110 staff and trainees, and over 30 faculty affiliates across Northwestern.
The Third Coast Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) has a grand vision to catalyze cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary collaborations with broad scope and major impact on the HIV epidemic in Chicago. We seek to realize this vision by serving as a national model for research to slow and stop the spread of HIV among young men who have sex with men. The Third Coast CFAR is funded by multiple institutes of the National Institutes of Health and administer by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
