Research

We build local research leadership through research that canvasses the health care needs of rural communities around the country.

We engage with policy makers, health professionals and clinicians to enhance the relevance of our research and the application our work in community settings.

Our researchers have gained a national and international reputation, with funding support regularly received from the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australian Research Council and other government agencies and support bodies.

To support capacity in the Northern Rivers, we supervise postgraduate research students and provide methodological support to rural practitioners undertaking research.

We also host the Centre for Research Excellence in Strengthening Systems for Indigenous Health Care Equity.

You can read about all our research projects within each of our eight core research streams here. 

If you are interested in undertaking research, we often have opportunities available to join our team working on projects and these will also be listed on the Our People page.
