Runajambi is actively looking for partnerships for collaborative research with colleagues from around the world.  We embrace the idea that health and medical research is essential for the human development of the Indigenous Peoples of the Andes.   We welcome both researchers interested in assisting us in our projects and colleagues who are looking for partners in the Andes for conducting their own studies.

At Runajambi, there are fully trained researchers trained in the USA and Canada, two of them are faculty members at American institutions of higher education.  We have a number of locally trained Master's level social scholars, and other staff able to assist in doing medical and social field work.  In addition, Runajambi has access to Indigenous Peoples communities and traditional healers.  We are the first and only Quichua research institution staffed entirely by Indigenous people.  Our "emic" indigenous perspective could contribute to enhance the quality of your work.

If you are looking for research partners located in the Andes and you think your project could fit our mission, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Send your inquiries to:
