Baker-Deakin Department of Lifestyle and Diabetes

The Baker-Deakin Department of Lifestyle and Diabetes (Baker-Deakin DLD) is an exciting collaborative partnership between the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute (the Baker Institute) and the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition, Deakin University. The virtual Department was established in February 2022 for an initial five-year term.

The Baker-Deakin DLD builds on Deakin and Baker Institute’s long-standing history of collaborative public health research and shared health research goals.
