Our Metabolic Medicine Theme includes world leaders in research and clinical care across the range of endocrine and metabolic related disorders. More than a million Australians are now affected by diabetes, making it one of the fastest growing chronic conditions across the nation. Our Metabolic Medicine Theme is tackling this enormous challenge and related issues first-hand, by bringing together researchers, clinicians and academics.
This theme is also working to provide cutting edge research in the areas of obesity, men’s health, endocrinology and endocrine hypertension, kidney disease, bone disorders including osteoporosis, pituitary disease and developmental biology.
Generation and implementation of new knowledge concerning management and healthcare delivery of endocrine disorders is important for improving patient-centred care and health outcomes.
