  • Health

    Health is a major component of human life. World Health Organization has defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. This definition emphasizes that good health does not confine only to the disease-free state. It also emphasizes the importance of mental and social well-being.

    In appreciation of the importance of health, Chulalongkorn University has established the “CU Health Research Cluster”. The main objectives are to conduct comprehensive research programs which increase our understanding of disease processes and to develop new methods for diagnosis and treatment. We focus mainly on pathological conditions that are highly prevalent in our country and this region.
