We are working on solving ‘big picture’ puzzles to transform the health landscape and importantly, the quality of care for people in our community.
We aim to:
- predict who will develop complications of diabetes by using big data and collaborating with the world’s best Institute’s both nationally and abroad
- provide earlier detection and more effective prevention and treatment of heart failure through personalised medicine
- predict who will develop complications of diabetes
- provide earlier detection and more effective prevention and treatment of heart failure
- decrease the gap between the lifespan of people with diabetes and those without
- develop novel anti-clotting drugs
- preserve cardiac function following a heart attack
- develop novel therapies to help prevent and treat obesity
- develop new approaches to help people start and maintain an active lifestyle.
We are working to understand:
- the influences that contribute to heart disease and diabetes in Aboriginal Australians
- why atrial fibrillation increases with age and what interventions might prevent its onset
- if it matters how long you exercise for and at what intensity to support better health.
We are committed to advocating for:
- action around rising rates of atrial fibrillation, heart failure, type 2 diabetes and obesity
- initiatives that improve the representation of women at senior levels in medical research.
