From the Director

Welcome to our new visionary research Institute which is the focus for synergy, cross-fertilisation, partnerships and multi-disciplinary research in the formation of new ideas, new collaborations and new discoveries for better health and wellbeing for all.

The Institute provides critical mass for research in areas of national and international health priority. It is the flagship research Institution for the UC Health Innovation Precinct; building on the University's reputation and existing research strengths in undertaking influential policy-relevant research for improved health, health policy and practice.

We actively encourage and support interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches in addressing 'real world' issues and future 'grand challenges' that require collaboration from researchers from a range of disciplines working together with the realization that an integration of multiple perspectives is required to better understand and ameliorate complex 'wicked problems' .
