The Centre for Big Data Research in Health (CBDRH) was established at the UNSW Faculty of Medicine and Health in 2014. We are Australia’s first research centre dedicated to health research using large-scale electronic data spanning the biomedical, clinical, health services and public health domains.

Transforming the prevention and management of disease and the delivery of health services

Our academics undertake high-quality, multi-disciplinary health research in partnership with clinicians, service providers, policymakers and industry to facilitate the rapid translation of research findings into health improvements.
