The Mechanisms and Interventions in Health and Disease research program seeks to enhance the understanding of health and disease in the following ways:
- researching the fundamental mechanisms of cells, biological systems and disease processes
- translating this knowledge into the development and implementation of interventions that maintain health, treat disease and inform policy and practice for enhanced health outcomes.
Program members use fundamental basic, applied, clinical and translational research approaches.
In total, the Mechanisms and Interventions in Health and Disease Program has more than 100 staff and higher-degree research students.
The program has three main research focus areas with ten research groups, outlined here.
