HIE’s Optimal Health researchers are working to move beyond the typical definition of health as the absence of disease to enable humans to achieve optimal health: a natural state where cells and organs are at their optimal metabolic and physiological capacity, ensuring functional cognitive and physical longevity. Traditionally seen as an unattainable goal, they are working towards its achievement by combining basic science, clinical research and targeted algorithms. This work includes investigations of obesity, mitochondrial dysfunction, and why some people appear to age faster than they should. Current research priorities are the root causes of mitochondrial dysfunction, systemic oxidative-stress and inflammation and the role of hormesis in their resolution. The work extends from the study of single molecules through to the detailed analysis of human physiology. Learn more about the Research Centre for Optimal Health (ReCOH).
