Working with our partners, we're assembling strong multidisciplinary research teams to tackle major national and international health and biosecurity challenges. Our goal is to deliver solutions to ensure Australia is prepared and ready to respond to existing and emerging risks.
Our research programs focus on health and biosecurity preparedness and responsiveness, digital health, and health and wellbeing.
We deliver impact in the following areas
- Implementing platforms, monitoring technologies, emergency response approaches to respond and prepare Australia against health and biosecurity risks to create resilient human populations, environments, and industries
- Accelerating the technologically and digitally driven transformation of Australia's healthcare and biosecurity systems
- Improving the health and wellbeing of all Australians with personalised or precision health technologies and individual-centric health interventions
Through our research, we're creating a resilient population and health system for Australia.
