Meet just a few of our leading researchers producing world-class outcomes.
IPAN is one of the few research groups nationally and internationally with critical mass focusing specifically on nutrition and physical activity in chronic disease prevention and treatment. We are also one of few that brings together staff with biomedical, clinical and population health expertise. As a result, we have the expertise and capacity to conduct research from the cellular level through to the population level.
IPAN has multidisciplinary expertise in:
- molecular and cell biology
- nutrition and dietetics
- exercise science
- social and behavioural science
- health geography
- public health
- prevention science.
Our research is strongly aligned with Australia’s health agenda, addressing eight of the nine National Health Priority Areas. These are:
- arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions
- cancer control
- cardiovascular health and stroke
- diabetes mellitus
- injury prevention and control
- mental health
Together, these represent almost three quarters of the total burden of disease of Australians. These health issues are also significant globally.
