About Research at ICIC

ICIC conducts research on four main areas: Intercultural rhetoric, English for specific purposes, health literacy and healthcare communication. In research, we work with interdisciplinary teams of applied linguists, medical writers, physicians, intercultural specialists, and communication theorists. We have ongoing, active collaborations with several types of community organizations including nonprofits, health clinics, and the populations they serve. We use both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, including interviews, focus groups, and corpus linguistic tools designed for large data mining.
