Cardiovascular and Lifestyle Medicine

Focus of our research

Our aim is to develop and deliver opportunities through globally significant interdisciplinary research and innovation excellence in cardiovascular and lifestyle medicine in order to improve health across the life course.

Using a translational research approach, we will develop, evaluate, and implement novel physiological, pharmacological, behavioural, and technological interventions to enhance prevention, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease. Our interventions aim to be culturally acceptable, scalable, cost-effective, and sustainable.

Objectives:
  1. Establish and deliver nationally and internationally leading interdisciplinary research and innovation in cardiovascular, lifestyle and exercise sciences.
  2. Develop and implement novel interventions to improve the health and wellbeing of people regionally, nationally and internationally.
  3. Strengthen our research and innovation capabilities in the areas of clinical, molecular and behavioural sciences.
  4. Nurture our postgraduate researchers to become the next generation of research and innovation leaders.
  5. Attract and develop internationally-recognised research and innovation staff in cardiovascular and lifestyle medicine.
