Remaining healthy and happy is an increasing challenge. Lifestyle choices and behaviours now contribute to higher levels of chronic conditions and the disparities and inequalities in health for some populations are widening. Not only are our health needs changing but users also have higher expectations of services.
Griffith’s MenziesHIQ undertakes research on all parts of life that affect our health, from social determinants, communicable and non-communicable disease, to clinical techniques, vaccines, musculoskeletal health and ageing.
With over 750 of the world’s leading biomedical and social scientists, clinical researchers and PhD candidates, Griffith’s MenziesHIQ has achieved remarkable outcomes. Strength has been gained from collaborations across three overarching programs that align with local and national health priorities. Underpinning the work of these three programs is a focus on allied health, innovations in healthcare, data science and clinical research partnerships.
