Welcome to the Department of Cardiometabolic Health

The Baker Department of Cardiometabolic Health is an exciting new collaboration between the Melbourne Medical School and the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute.

The Department will focus on research and innovation to improve the lives of people with, or at risk of, cardiovascular disease (CVD), obesity and diabetes.

This initiative will leverage both organisations’ strengths in cardiometabolic capabilities and collaboration, provide national leadership in cardiometabolic medicine and attract greater international recognition to the field.

Joining forces will offer significant benefits for performance, scale, breadth and competitiveness and will draw heavily on expertise in engineering, mathematics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, psychology, epidemiology and other disciplines within the University.
