Mission Statement

Our Mission at EMeRGe is:

To improve population health outcomes through research evidence and to translate the evidence into effective decision making for policy and practice. In particular, to: promote safe, quality and effective medicines management and model disease epidemiology in cancer and cardiovascular disease.  

Four main pillars of research within the Research Unit:

  • Safe and Quality Medicines (RLA; ADR study; Drug interactions; PIP ; high risk)
  • Adherence (TILDA, CPCR cohort, and breast cancer intervention studies)
  • Cancer epidemiology (Breast-Predict; Cancer Pharmacopeia; Integrative Cancer Epidemiology / Molecular Epidemiology )
  • Other disease modelling/epi (stroke-Cog; CHD models)
