Healthy living theme

UQ and Exeter are committed to the UN sustainable development goal of ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for all.

Both institutions are world leaders in relevant fields of research ranging across:

  • dementia,
  • diabetes,
  • health economics,
  • genomics, gerontology, and
  • human movement and nutrition. 

The healthy living theme will allow us to join forces and expertise in order to lead the way in supporting global health and wellbeing through innovative ground-breaking research hand translation into policy and practice for impact.
