Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (GCEID)
The Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (GCEID) 'One Health' approach delivers innovative research outcomes, providing practical solutions to the risks posed by emerging infectious diseases to our region, nationally and internationally. GCEID combines specialised research facilities and highly skilled staff to combat infectious diseases through a collaborative, multidisciplinary partnership between Deakin University, Barwon Health and CSIRO – Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL).
ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES)
At the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), we turn our fundamental knowledge of cutting-edge materials into the next generation of ‘smart devices’ for the benefit of the community. But what exactly does that mean? We think of a smart device as a game-changing application, utilising the advanced materials we make in our laboratories to create new health and energy solutions that improve people’s lives.
Food & Mood Centre
The Food and Mood Centre is a collaborative research centre led by Deakin University in Australia. We are a multi-disciplinary team studying the ways in which what we eat influences our brain, mood, and mental health. This centre is unique. It is the only centre specifically focusing on Nutritional Psychiatry research. The centre performs cutting-edge research to identify new and effective approaches to the prevention and treatment of mental and brain disorders. We hope that the information on this website will help your understanding of the topic and help you to make positive improvements to your own nutrition and mental health.
