Rutgers-NYU Center for Asian Health Promotion and Equity

Project: Research project

Project Details


We propose the Rutgers-NYU Center for Asian Health Promotion and Equity (CAHPE) (RFA-MD-21-007) to advance interdisciplinary research on cardiometabolic disease and mental health, informing population health, practice, and policy at multiple levels. The Rutgers NYU Center will have three inter-connected themes: 1) Test intervention models (primary, secondary, tertiary) among US Asians with cardiometabolic and mental health issues, through 3 synergistic and collaborative R01 projects; 2) Support the design and implementation of multi-disciplinary pilot studies; 3) Build institutional capacity to support the adaption and impact of clinical trial research to optimize cardiometabolic and mental health and disease prevention, treatment and management. The overall aims of the application reflect the Administration Core (AC), Investigator Development Core (IDC), Community Engagement Core (CEC) and three collaborative and synergistic R01 research projects in order to: 1) Provide leadership, organizational communication, and evaluation systems designed to achieve the overarching goals of supporting high quality and enduring inter-disciplinary research on cardiometabolic and mental health outcomes among Asian adults; 2) Guide solicitation and selection of 6 pilot studies per year to conduct interdisciplinary and translational cardiometabolic and mental health research in diverse Asian populations, ensuring scientifically rigorous pilot projects; 3) Aim 3: Enhance, track, and evaluate existing infrastructure to support and synchronize the pilot and center projects to utilize tools, methods, and theories from translational, mechanistic clinical research that support successful of pilot and developmental projects resulting in impactful findings; 4) Implement the three interdisciplinary, translational, and synergistic R01 projects with specific focus on: Nutritional, Positive Affect, and Dementia Caregiving Interventions to multi-prone target diverse Asian population with high r
