Our Research

Baker IDI's research is based on the notion of a disease continuum from birth to death, with the aim of treating, managing and preventing the progression of disease at any stage.

Our work ranges from cellular and molecular biology research in the laboratory to clinical-based research through to lifestyle and behavioural research that aims to inform prevention strategies.

Baker IDI's Mission is to reduce death and disability from cardiovascular disease, diabetes and related conditions through research, education and health care delivery.

Our research structure aims to facilitate collaboration across disciplines, with a strong focus on answering critical questions in human health and the ability to respond to new developments in medical research and the changing health needs of our community.

Five research Programs underpin Baker IDI's major scientific goals. Each Program addresses a key question of interest.

The Programs are supported by a set of Domains, which are built around the full range of life-stage disease themes encompassed by the institute's science.
