Lifestyle for health and wellbeing

Encompassing research across several disciplines with the common goal of facilitating healthy living and ageing across the lifespan.

Our aim is to provide evidence-based knowledge to improve human health and wellbeing throughout an individual’s whole life by considering the social, behavioural, nutritional and biological determinants and consequences of human lifestyles.

Theme members conduct world-leading research with the common aim of providing evidence-based knowledge that facilitates improved physical and mental health and wellbeing, lowers the risk of communicable and non-communicable disease, and aids the effective management of pre-existing conditions.

Our work spans from global population research to molecular biology. As such we cover a wide range of expertise including: epidemiology, psychology, physiology, nutrition, biomechanics, human and molecular biology, rehabilitation science and social sciences.
