our research

How our research is different

People, not test tubes

Proven solutions for preventing and treating chronic disease and injury prevention are often surprisingly simple and quick to implement. We focus on the chronic and critical conditions that cause the greatest loss of life and the greatest impairment of life quality, particularly in resource-poor settings.

Faster results, better health outcomes

In biomedical research, it can take decades before research findings are translated into medical practice. Our goal is to generate evidence that can affect crucial change within a five-year timeframe, improving quality of life and health outcomes.

Seeing research through to practice

Once the results of our research are published, we actively engage in the translation of our work into practice and engage with policymakers to bring the best available evidence into the decision making processes. We develop and test novel technologies and other innovations for use by clinicians and other health workers, and deliver them into healthcare settings.
