Student Research

Powering New Insights

Woodrow Wilson School Symposium

One of the most powerful ways Princeton University can be of service to the global community is to prepare those who will shape the future of health and health policy for years to come.

We make it a point to directly involve students in these initiatives, supporting them throughout their time at Princeton as they:

  • Participate in faculty research
  • Design research of their own creation
