For more than 75 years, The University of Chicago has been a leader in fostering interdisciplinary research and training at the intersections of health and the social sciences. The Center for Health and the Social Sciences, founded in 2005, continues this legacy by supporting interdisciplinary health research and training initiatives across campus.
CHeSS is both a place and an idea. Our facilities comprise over 10,000 square feet of dedicated offices, conference rooms, and research facilities in the heart of the University of Chicago’s Hyde Park campus. Our goal is to support and promote innovation and excellence in research, scholarship, training, and collaboration. Our 105 faculty associates come from virtually all schools and divisions at the University, and collectively help to define CHeSS’s identity as an incubator of ideas and support for research in health and the social sciences on campus.
