The Institute of Health Sciences carries out interdisciplinary research on health topics and related subject areas. At the same time, it develops didactically valuable and technology-based solutions for higher education and further training in the health professions.
There are three focal points in the field of health sciences, which should ensure a close connection to the Bachelor's degree programs of the Department of Health at the St. Pölten UAS:

1. Dietetic Research & Nutrition Science
2. Nursing Science
3. Physio Science

In addition, there are four cross-cutting topics that not only flow into the three focus areas, but are also links to the UAS-wide research topics. These are:

1. Life Long Learning
2. Sustainability
3. Gender & Diversity
4. Digital Health
