IUPUI has a new Center for Urban Health, hosted by the Purdue School of Science at IUPUI. The center will focus on issues affecting individuals living in urban environments, with global population estimates soaring as high as seven billion within the next year, nearly 50 percent of them living in cities. Gabriel Filippelli of Science is the founding director of the center, which includes the IUPUI-based schools of Liberal Arts and Medicine, plus the department of Public Health.
