Centre for Integrated Research in Life and Health Sciences


The Centre for Integrated Research in Life and Health Sciences spans 3 dimensions: disciplinary, methodical, taxonomic and biological levels.

Fully harnessing the potential that this configuration presents, our vision is to explore fundamental questions about health; critically, we conceptualise health in the broadest way – the natural and adaptive functioning of people, of organisms and of diverse natural systems.

Through the development of broad inter-disciplinary research themes and associated activities, we aim to break down traditional discipline boundaries and bring together teams of people to address key research questions in new ways through their diverse and distinct combinations of expertise.

Our two current research themes are: People, Animals & Environment, and Health, Performance & Physiology.
