The Centre for Health Innovation
We are a radically interdisciplinary, solutions-focused group of clinician-scientists, engineers, humanities experts, and basic and social scientists tackling the increasing complexity of today’s health and healthcare delivery challenges. We are transforming health research by creating cohesive interdisciplinary teams, state-of-the-art platforms, and community partnerships to forge paths towards the next generation of health solutions.
