Research pillar:Intervention

Investigating the extent to which changing physical activity and sedentary behaviour influences chronic disease prevention and management through real-world randomised controlled trials.

Research focus

This research pillar focuses on strategies to improve health and prevent the development of chronic disease through real-world interventions to increase physical activity and sedentary behaviour over a period of weeks or months. Such behaviour change interventions are an important step to understanding whether the benefits seen in acute laboratory experiments translate over a longer period of time.
