Our objectives are to improve understanding of the biological processes that control chronic disease including inflammation, fibrosis and cellular nutrition; to develop improved methods of disease prevention, management and therapy through nutritional, medicinal and behavioural intervention; to advance understanding of behavioural processes that influence the development, management and self-management of chronic disease.
