The Charles Perkins Centre is a multidisciplinary internationally renowned research and education hub that uses a complex-systems approach to chronic lifestyle diseases (in particular diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease). The key aspect of the Centre is the way they utilise a non-traditional interconnected approach to tackle disease. These interconnections bring in a multitude of contexts including societal, environmental, psychological, ageing, basic science, policy, politics, agriculture, economics, nutrition, ethics and many more. A strategic partnership between the Universities of Glasgow and Sydney is already in place and the new seminar series will strengthen this partnership specifically in the area of cardiovascular health.
