Public Health research is diverse. As a result, the Public Health research program in FHMRI includes a number of research groups, centres and projects covering a range of topics and fields. The ultimate goal of public health research is to improve the health of populations by generating knowledge that can be used to inform policies, programs, and interventions aimed at preventing disease, promoting health, and reducing health disparities.
Our Public health research involves a wide range of methods, including observational studies, clinical trials, surveys, and qualitative research. It is highly collaborative and applied – we work in partnership with other researchers, healthcare providers, policymakers, and community members.
Our Public Health researchers are world’s best. There are a wide range of MRFF, NHMRC and ARC funded ongoing research projects focusing on solving our greatest health challenges.
