Asia-Pacific Biocultural Health investigates fundamental questions of our human past that have pressing implications for human health today.
Through the melding of prehistoric health and current biomedical research (evolutionary medicine), we can assess our understanding of health issues of non-communicable and infectious disease, social disparity, and dietary and cultural change.
Drawing on multidisciplinary approaches we will build new, and strengthen existing research relationships, increasing research capacity, showcasing our international leadership in these areas.
