Health Sciences research impact case studies

We strive for high quality research that changes the world.

Our researchers are improving people's health, changing local and central government policies, contributing to best practice guidelines, creating spin-off companies to commercialise discoveries, and building capability by training the next generation of scientists.

By forming meaningful relationships with stakeholders, creating strong networks with other researchers and being advocates for policy change we are achieving success for our communities.

Read how researchers are generating benefits including health, societal, cultural, economic or environmental factors at the individual, whānau and community level.
