Volunteer for studies and trials
Researchers in the School of Medical Sciences undertake innovative projects in the areas of biomedical sciences, exercise science and healthy lifestyles, laboratory medicine, medical radiations and pharmaceutical sciences.
There are various opportunities to make an exciting contribution to medical sciences by volunteering for the following studies and trials.
The ASPREE project, which is investigating if daily low-dose aspirin can help maintain good physical and mental health in older Australians, will enrol 12,500 healthy seniors in Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and South Australia by mid-2013.
Principal Investigator: Professor John McNeil
The DAIRY-FIT project, funded by the Dairy Health and Nutrition Consortium, is investigating the role of dairy-rich products and exercise in healthy weight loss.
Principal Investigator: Professor John Hawley
Workplace exercise intervention
We are conducting a study investigating the effects of a workplace exercise intervention on cardiometabolic disease risk, psychological health, physical fitness and health-related quality of life. This is an outstanding opportunity to receive free comprehensive health and fitness screening, and exercise programming from an accredited exercise physiologist.
