At the Charles Perkins Centre we are dedicated to easing the global burden of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions through innovative research and teaching. We're finding solutions that will inform and reform the health of the world.

The cause and consequences of these diseases are more complicated than biology alone. That's why we're bringing together scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the interconnectedness of our environment, food and health.
