Combatting Chronic Disease

Combatting Chronic Disease

More than 7 million Australians live with a chronic condition and more are at risk due to obesity and old age. Research is crucial to help these people lead healthy, fulfilling lives despite their condition.

Diseases that were once a death sentence can now be managed throughout life. Our research into debilitating conditions like heart and brain disease, diabetes, cancer, mental illness and bone and joint problems will mean people lead better lives. It will also save the health system valuable dollars and will mean people can stay at work and care for their families for longer, with far reaching implications for the entire community.
