Center for Public Policy Research


The Center for Public Policy Research (CPPR) is a multi-disciplinary research center that balances academic research with applied work. CPPR has sponsored and promoted research in health policy, public finance, education, and regulation. The regulation programming strengthened The Murphy Institute's longstanding ties to Tulane Law, and frequent collaboration led to the development of a new, joint center: the Center on Law and the Economy.

CPPR currently funds postdoctoral positions in health policy and education, provides Seed Grants to promote research by Tulane faculty, and hosts an annual two-day symposium in the spring on public policy issues related to political economy. CPPR also sponsors access to restricted U.S. Census data from the Atlanta Research Data Center (ARDC) free of charge for qualified Tulane researchers.  

Seed Grants

CPPR runs a yearly, competitive seed grant program in order to fund leading edge research in public policy and other exciting projects within political economy.

Atlanta Research Data Center

Tulane is a member of the consortium of the Atlanta RDC, a secure computing lab where researchers conduct statistical analysis on data from many major government agencies.
