Given the multidisciplinary nature of health and environmental science, partnerships are essential to increase the effectiveness of our research. Faculty and staff have links with local government agencies, research institutes and universities.

The Department collaborates with other departments within the University, as well as with local industry and agencies in Suzhou, Shanghai and within China. We also collaborate with international and global organisations, such as the World Health Organisation and UNICEF. These collaborative agreements benefit students by providing internship and other opportunities.
