In 2003 the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine was successful in establishing a CCRE in Therapeutics under the direction of Professors Henry Krum, John McNeil, Andrew Tonkin, Andrew Forbes, Paul Myles and Flavia Cicuttini.
The CCRET undertakes the spectrum of human research, from laboratory studies through to large clinical registries and clinical trials as well as health services research and health economics. CCRE Therapeutics has developed into the Monash Centre of Cardiovascular Research and Education in Therapeutics.
The focus of the CCRET is on cardiovascular diseases, but we also have an interest in other areas, including nutrition, musculoskeletal disease, oncology and ageing. The ‘Therapeutics’ part reflects our traditional strength in drugs, devices and other clinical interventions, but the Centre also works in health promotion and prevention.
