CAIRHE is always growing as a research center. When an investigator is no longer funded by CAIRHE as a research or pilot project leader—often because she or he has received independent major funding—that investigator remains part of the center. While the following projects and/or investigators do not receive current CAIRHE funding, they continue to pursue health equity research as affiliated investigators.
