Work with ICR

There are many ways to work with ICR to build community-based research collaborations and increase skills and capacity in community and participatory research.

Researchers, community organizations, and others interested in building partnerships with ICR are encouraged to contact us to discuss your research questions and interests.

General questions about opportunities for the development of research partnerships with members of the ICR staff can be addressed to Executive Director and Senior Scientist, Margaret R. Weeks, Ph.D., at mweeks@icrweb.org. To learn more about the areas of expertise of ICR scientists and program directors, you can link to our staff page. You can also link to Our Work to learn more about our past research and programs.

Over the past three decades, ICR researchers have conducted numerous studies and generated rich qualitative, survey, and mixed methods data on a wide range of topics. This includes cross-sectional, longitudinal, narrative, social network, intervention evaluation, and other kinds of data. Areas of research include health, mental health, substance use/abuse, HIV/AIDS risk and prevention, and health disparities across the age spectrum in the U.S. and internationally. Secondary data analysis can potentially explore many important questions not examined as part of the parent study. Some data may have restrictions on sharing outside of the research team.

General questions about opportunities for secondary data analysis can be addressed to Senior Research Scientist, Jianghong Li, M.D., M.S., at jianghong.li@icrweb.org. To learn more about our past projects and the kinds of data associated with them, link to Our Work and click on subject areas and projects related to your interests.
