School of Human Sciences
The School of Human Sciences applies a broad, interdisciplinary approach to understanding human function and how it adapts to change and challenges.
For this research, our physiology researchers are seeking a greater understanding of how the human body functions and interacts with its surrounding environment.
Exercise and health
The exercise and health research discipline investigates how physical activity can prevent chronic disease and promote longer, healthier lives.
Optimising physical and mental performance
Our researchers are discovering ways to improve the quality of life by better understanding how we think, feel and move.
