Our vision for the 2014 Australian Health and Medical Research Congress (AHMRC) is to showcase “Transdisciplinary Approaches to Chronic Diseases”- a new era in team science.
Transdisciplinary research brings together researchers and stakeholders from diverse disciplines to maximise investment in health and medical research towards translation into policy and practice and to work towards solving a common scientific goal. It can involve disciplines that one would not immediately recognise as having a vital role in translating medical research into health outcomes e.g. architecture, physics or environmental science.
We encourage you to view our YouTube presentation to discover what is Transdisciplinary Research and why you should join us in November 2014 at the Australian Health and Medical Research Congress in Melbourne.
