The ORIGINS Project is a major new longitudinal birth cohort study being conducted by the Telethon Kids Institute at the Joondalup Health Campus.
The ORIGINS Project is sponsored by the Telethon Kids Institute and Ramsay Health Care. It is supported by the Joondalup Health Campus community - clinicians, nursing, support staff and services alike, as well as the City of Joondalup, the City of Wanneroo, and the major universities in Western Australia.
All are keen to be involved in seeking new interventions and strategies to improve the health of their community.
Major partners at the Joondalup Health Campus include Western Diagnostic Pathology and Perth Radiological Clinic.

It is becoming increasingly evident that an individual's lifetime health and disease may be programmed at a very early stage.
This concept is known as the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD).
