Upstream Team

We are a research network focusing on environmental determinants of physical activity, dietary behaviours and chronic disease risk.

The Upstream Team aims to generate, foster and share knowledge with regard to the spaces, places and conditions that shape lifestyle behaviours in adults, and explore how these relate to obesity and risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

By providing evidence and knowledge for action we support the prevention and reduction of lifestyle related chronic diseases.


The strength of the Upstream Team is the expertise across and within the domains (Environments, Behaviours, Health outcomes).
