As well as ORIGINS long-term core research, there are a number of clinical trials, early interventions and shorter-term research studies that sit within ORIGINS. Known as sub-projects, these studies look at multiple aspects of child and family health and development.
ORIGINS welcomes undergraduate, Honours, PhD, Masters, and Doctor of Medicine students, in addition to junior doctors or trainees wishing to undertake a research placement or project as part of their studies.
The ORIGINS Project fosters a strong supportive network for students joining the team.
Students can be involved directly with The ORIGINS Project or one of the sub-projects.
ORIGINS has a number of research projects in development for students looking for project ideas. We can also link you to potential supervisors at the Telethon Kids Institute and other research institutions.
Students can also volunteer with the project further or prior to their student placement with ORIGINS.
Opportunities for scholarships are available for students from ORIGINS.

The ORIGINS Student Circle

Students may present and discuss their research, hear from members of the ORIGINS team and request and receive support from ORIGINS and their peers.
