preventable chronic diseases division Research Priorities The Preventable Chronic Diseases Divisions research is focusing on treatment and prevention of diabetes, tobacco control interventions and promotion of healthy eating and active lifestyles within Indigenous communities. Looking Forward The next couple of years will be particularly exciting for the PCD division. Following great NHMRC funding success by all three research programs, we will be doubling the number of staff in the division in early 2009. This work will bring us exciting new projects, new faces at Menzies, and new places where we will be working. The Tobacco Control research team has also begun discussions that may lead to Indigenous tobacco control research collaborations New Zealand and Canada. We will also continue to work with local policy makers and practitioners so they can use research fi ndings to improve current policies and practices, and so make a difference to Aboriginal health. We are also working hard with our Indigenous PhD students and Indigenous research staff to improve their training and development opportunities whilst at Menzies.
