​The CRI partners with the following programs at AUB and AUBMC:

GES​I: The Global Evidence Synthesis Initiative (GESI)​ aims to develop the capacity of producing and using research synthesis among policy-makers and practitioners in low- and middle-income countries.


HRPP​: The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at AUB is responsible to safeguard the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in Biomedical and Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) research activities conducted under the auspices of AUB. It is committed to protect, ensure respect and foster awareness for those rights. This is achieved by governing and authorizing the conduct of research that follows the three ethical principles of the Belmont Report namely: Respect for Persons; Beneficence and Justice; and that abides by the principles of responsible research conduct and scientific integrity. The Institutional Review Board (IRB), the core component of HRPP, is the committee formally designated by HRPP to review and approve the conduct of research involving human subjects at AUB/AUBMC and/or by AUB faculty, students and staff, regardless of the funding source or the location of the research.

SHARP​: The Scholars in HeAlth Research Program (SHARP) provides graduates with the required foundation to pursue a career in clinical and translational research, focusing on non-communic​able diseases (NCDs). SHARP offers both a certificate and an MSc. Degree in Health Research, both are jointly awarded by the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Health Sciences at AUB.​

SPARK​: The Center for Systematic Reviews on Health Policy and Systems Research (SPARK)​ is a collaborative effort between the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) and the Faculty of Medicine (FM) at AUB. It produces systematic reviews that respond to national and regional health policy and system priority needs.
