Research Programs

The FFCMH supports world-class research programs within each of three major themes; health services and preventative health, basic science, and clinical and population health. Our programs operate across the campuses of the three South Australian Universities, SAHMRI and the public hospitals.    Our collaborations extend to centres of research excellence nationally and internationally.

These programs not only target the most pressing issues in men's health but also concurrently address many of the National Health Priority Areas of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, mental health/depression and obesity. The Centre's achievements have been made possible by engaging with, investing in, and bringing together multidisciplinary teams of world-class scientists, clinicians and public health practitioners.

The Centre encourages researchers with an interest in men's health to join up as a member of the Centre to input into and interact with the mix of expertise available across the Centre. The Centre engages with research leaders and stakeholders to ensure our research programs remain clinically relevant, comprehensive, are successfully translated and that it appropriately represents and consider the needs of vulnerable populations of men.
