The Centre for Applied Social and Health Sciences focuses on contemporary issues within the field and encompasses research that spans many diverse topics relevant to health, wellbeing, social and developmental sciences.

The centre encourages a collaborative approach to tackle contemporary research questions with interdisciplinary research.

Staff within the Faculty of Sport, Allied Health, and Performance Sciences have been involved in innovative high impact research. This research centre seeks to nurture the high quality research work of our faculty staff and postgraduate research students, plus those within the broader university and with our external collaborators.

Primarily the Centre aims to promote work that tackle key research questions that directly relate to contemporary challenges that applied social and health sciences and professionals face.

Our research priorities give strategic shape to our structure, which is organised around key themes on prominent topics. These key themes are evolving and research priorities are reviewed regularly.
