Our research aims to understand the determinants of health and to contribute to health improvement for all populations, locally and globally, especially those who are most disadvantaged (including Indigenous populations). To meet these challenges, our research strengths are especially focused on the following priority areas:
Disparities, disadvantage and effective health care
Reducing the gap in health and wellbeing due to disadvantage through evidence-based policy and health care.
Data science, health metrics and disease modeling
Combining the power of advanced computation, data linkage and biological discovery to reduce the impact of current and burgeoning disease.
Screening and early detection of disease
Finding and treating diseases and disorders early to reduce their impact on health
Prevention and management of non-communicable diseases (including cancer), and promotion of mental health
Evidence-based research and programs which contribute to preventing and alleviating some of the world's most common, debilitating and burdensome health issues.
