Research Activities

Our Centre supports a range of activities to develop research collaborations between New Zealand and China on non-communicable diseases (NCDs):

Priority Research Areas

Our priority research areas are based on the main NCDs identified by the World Health Organisation as well as those of our partners in China and our areas of research strength:

  • cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases
  • cancer
  • diabetes and obesity
  • neuropsychiatric disorders and age-related diseases
  • obstructive pulmonary emphysema

Cutting across these priority areas, we also encourage research focussing on modernisation of traditional medicine, big data and gene environment interactions.
