Health and Wellness

ECU has nationally and internationally recognised health researchers, supported by extensive collaborations and partnerships.

Our health research focuses on preventative health, early detection, intervention and rehabilitation, and on developing strategies and programs which impact on community-wide health.

Specific expertise exists in Alzheimer’s disease, covering onset, causes, treatment, and support mechanisms for both patients and the ageing.

New wellness approaches to chronic disease management are being researched by multidisciplinary teams in exercise and sports science, nutrition and psychology.

Strong research centres also exist in nursing, midwifery, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People health, and child and adolescent health. Stem cell and melanoma research is also well advanced.
