Translating innovative health research into better health outcomes

The Menzies Health Institute Queensland undertakes research across the lifecycle to identify key factors that influence health. From this we develop and test strategies to improve health and wellbeing for individuals, families and communities.

With exceptional biomedical, nursing, allied health, social and behavioural scientists, clinical researchers and research candidates, Griffith’s MenziesHIQ has achieved remarkable outcomes.

Three overarching programs—Building Healthy Communities, Understanding Chronic Conditions and Optimising Health Outcomes—encapsulate our research strengths and align with local and national health priorities. Underpinning the work of these programs is a focus on innovation, data science, research translation and meaningful clinical and community partnerships.
