V-CORE: Vietnam Center of Research Excellence

We plan to establish a multi-institutional US-Vietnam-China partnership to plan and build a Regional Center of Research Excellence (RCRE) for NCD research in Vietnam. Our long-term goal is to establish a self-sustaining, high-impact NCD research and training center in Vietnam and to establish a large population-based cohort study for NCD research there.
