- About Deakin
The Faculty of Health engages in research on health and illness from the molecular level to the level of the individual, as well as examining how the broader society impacts on attitudes and behaviours. Our research covers a broad range of illness and health-related areas, including diabetes, obesity and mental illness. Our approaches address both disease prevention and disease management, and include community-based interventions, economic evaluations biomedical to psychophysical methods, epidemiologic studies and policy-based research. Our research is solution-focused with a goal of knowledge transfer of research findings to inform policy, practice and teaching.
The Faculty has affiliation with five of the University Strategic Research Centres, which work with national and international partners in health communities, business, industry and government to bring about evidence-based practical, equitable health outcomes globally, nationally and in local communities. The Centres are engaged in research programs related to patient care, mental health, molecular medicine, public health research and evaluation, population health, and social determinants of health and wellbeing.
