Understanding, treatment and prevention of chronic diseases

‘Healthy Futures’ research encompasses a holistic view of health, including physical, mental, social, environmental, and community health research. It is concerned with bringing insights about health to the people who need it, educating individuals and communities, and providing a framework for wellbeing across the lifespan. We do this across research disciplines, from investigating at a cellular level to the analysis of populations. ‘Healthy Futures’ research focuses on discovery, translation, implementation and evaluation, ensuring that insights are shared, and positive change is enacted.
