The Research Centre for Health, Ageing and Understanding Disease (CHAUD) delivers interdisciplinary research to explore health and diseases across the life course.
The CHAUD research centre aims to tackle some of this century’s most urgent health challenges through harbouring expertise in priority research themes:
- Cancer Biology, Immunology and Therapeutics (CBIT)
- Metabolic Health
- Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota (AROM)
- Integrative Neurophysiology
Together the centres themes enable a collaborative research ideology to generate answers to urgent questions and benefit our understanding of human health. Our researchers investigate cellular and physiological mechanisms to identify of fundamentals disease progress and provide new therapeutic tools. As a collaborative team we strive to detect disease earlier and aid the development of new treatments through the utilisation of state-of-the-art technological platforms.
Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota (AROM)
Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota (AROM) research group incorporate classical microbiology, molecular biology, systems biology and bioinformatics.
Our researchers are leading globally recognised research projects focussed on the key processes underpinning human diseases (including diabetes, obesity and cancers).
The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre
The Centre has a strong research base which aligns to the Health and Wellbeing strategic theme, the Cancer Biology, Immunology and Therapeutics theme and the Biosciences subject area here at NTU.
Our Integrative Neurophysiology research team lead investigations into different areas of neuroscience, including neurodegeneration, neuropathy and pain, neuroendocrine regulation of energy balance and metabolism, and neurodevelopmental disease.
Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021
The Centre for Health, Ageing and Understanding Disease Research Centre submitted an impact case study to REF 2021. 99% of NTU's research submitted to the 'Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy' Unit of Assessment was considered to be either world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of quality.
