Exploring possible therapies for motor neurone disease
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a type of motor neurone disease affecting communication between the brain and muscles, causing progressive loss of muscle control.
Our research focus is on improving population health. We conduct metabolism, physiology, clinical and behavioural studies, and community and population-based research. IPAN has four research domains and three cross-domain themes. Learn more about our cross-domain themes.
IPAN also hosts the Baker-Deakin Department of Lifestyle and Diabetes.
Understanding how the biological mechanisms behind exercise and nutrition work, and how they impact on health.
