We are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities in Australia and around the globe by conducting rigorous, innovative, and internationally significant research.

The National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine brings together a vast array of expertise with our team of internationally-recognised scholars. Our faculty are leaders in their disciplines, which forms a multi-disciplinary approach to delivering research with impact.

The Centre focuses on four keys areas of research, all approached with a translational outcome in mind. These key areas are natural drug discovery and development; non-pharmacological interventions; integrative models of care; and traditional knowledge.
