The Health, Wellbeing and life sciences agenda continues to grow rapidly in regional, national and global importance. The faculty reinforces our identity in this area and sets us up to tackle not just the traditional health, biological and medical sciences agendas, but signals our existing excellence and intent on the broader but increasingly important areas of social and environmental aspects of human health. This faculty will champion our Strategy work on ‘making key breakthroughs to transform human health and wellbeing’ within the context of strong fundamental health and life sciences.
