Using nuclear techniques to sustain good health

Nuclear techniques can be used therapeutically and also to monitor health.

Health researchers investigate how nuclear techniques can be used most effectively as treatments and to monitor the progression of disease. 

The main research goal is to facilitate the integration of nuclear techniques with other therapeutic approaches for more tailored treatments . 

Nuclear tools and techniques have the potential to track and measure small physiological variations during the development of disease, in particular during the non-symptomatic phase.

Key Area 1: Understand the mechanisms that underpin the evolution of chronic disease from the initial response to disease progression

Undertake research on the physiological changes initiated by exposure to environmental, biological and societal changes.
