Understanding and prevention of disease
Basic and clinical science researchers engaged in the theme of understanding as well as prevention of disease strive to deal with some of the main issues that bedevil the healthcare system. This involves several areas that pose major challenges in both developing as well as developed countries.

Disease prevention is most definitely the best way to improve the quality of life as well as preventing avoidable deaths. Mater Research is determined to put into use their pool of knowledge, in the area of fundamental disease basis, to devise appropriate strategies aimed at prevention of diseases.
Bettering the treatment of disease
In the theme of improving disease treatment, the scientists and healthcare professionals are working together in order to help patients who suffer from a wide range of disorders, ailments and injuries. By individualizing healthcare through use of genomic age power as well as employing the most modern diagnostic technology is one of the main pillars in the plans to optimize the outcome for the different individual patients. The researchers combine this philosophy with the newly developed treatments in order to identify the best ways of treating diseases. This is mostly done through clinical trials. Unfortunately, there are a good number of people within the community, who suffer from incurable injuries, diseases and developmental disorders. Through thorough research the life quality of such patients can be optimized.
