Research in health sciences

We have strong connections with the health sector and deliver leading research across the field of health sciences. Our research projects are often developed collaboratively to address organisational and workforce needs.

AUT is home to world-leading researchers across the field of health sciences. We’ve led the world’s largest study of problem gambling treatments, run New Zealand’s only longitudinal study of Pacific Island families and have New Zealand’s only centre for eHealth.
