The PSC maintains close collaborations with four of Penn’s schools: the Perelman School of Medicine, The Wharton School, the School of Nursing, and the School of Social Policy and Practice both through individual Research Associate appointments and Allied Centers and Initiatives.
Allied Centers include research centers (or their equivalent) with which the PSC has mutually beneficial exchange relationships. Internal Allied Centers are restricted to those that add to our primary research areas and with which we have complementary grant funding and/or shared staffing and activity space. We also have various initiatives and co-sponsor events and activities across Penn with other groups.
External Allied Centers are part of our effort to enhance research community access to shared resources. We have links with institutions outside of Penn around topics related to our research themes. In addition, we have partnerships with organizations globally whose research agendas align with ours and where we have strong ties and established partnerships.
