Margaret Scrimgeour has engaged in a broad scope of Education and Public Health research over the past twenty years. A post doctoral research position at the Co-Operative Research Centre for Aboriginal and Tropical Health (CRCATH) in Darwin led to participation in the development of an agenda for reform of approaches to health research involving the interests of Indigenous people. She has subsequently worked with Indigenous colleagues to investigate approaches to Research Ethics, community engagement in research, education as a social determinant of health, anti-racism education and cultural safety curriculum development.
