Behaviour-Brain-Body Research Centre (BBB), brings together expertise in sleep, nutrition and activity, and their combined impact on chronic illness. Behavioural risk factors (including inadequate sleep, poor diet, and lack of exercise) are significant contributors to healthy functioning. Our researchers work on projects that span from behavioural predictors and interventions to improve fetal health, through school and the working career, to late life.

The BBB team works together to understand the role of sleep, circadian disruption, nutrition, and physical activity in as predictors of:

Fetal health  Impairment in high performance environments
Resilient school learners  Cognitive functioning through cancer treatment
Metabolic disease in shift workers  Early indicators of dementia risk

The BBB trajectory from basic science to real world impact
