Excellence in research is at the core of our vision for UC-HRI which brings together University-wide expertise in clinical sciences, public health, urban planning, and health services research across the continuum of 'whole of person health to whole of population' (Melodi Licht 2007).
The UC-HRI consolidates and showcases the University's health research strengths, building the scale, scope, sustainability and infrastructure necessary to support world-class health research and to take it to the world.
Key Research Areas
- Health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan
- Healthcare systems and health services research
- Technology for improved health and well-being
A University of Canberra researcher is running a competition for adolescents to have their say in what they want, and need, in public outdoor spaces.

A research team from the University of Canberra has won a Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) grant for a four-year project that will address developmental vulnerability and health inequity among young children in the Australian Capital Territory.
Combining geospatial and health data in innovative, ground-breaking new ways, the Lab’s ultimate goal is to support healthier lifestyles, prevent chronic illness and reduce unsustainable strain on the health system.
