Organisation profile

Organisation profile

SHAPE is a multidisciplinary research centre focused on movement behaviours. We are committed to high quality translational research that will enhance knowledge and understanding around sport and physical activity.

These are areas of growing national significance, given the challenges that Australians face with respect to emerging health concerns such as overweight and obesity, physical inactivity and poor dietary practice.

There are also challenges facing individual and community health in contemporary Western society that are influenced by social determinants such as age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and socioeconomic status.

We are uniquely positioned to assist in tackling community health issues through our high-quality research.
