Sedentary time – too much sitting, as distinct from too little exercise – is now being recognised as a population-wide, ubiquitous health risk, manifested in children, adults and older people. This CRE research program brings together national and international research teams to build new interdisciplinary research capacities and to integrate and advance knowledge on sitting time and chronic disease prevention across three key themes: Measurement, Mechanisms and Intervention.
