We have a number of studies that have been a part of The ORIGINS Project but are currently inactive.
Engage – Discovering and delighting in your baby is at the centre of this study. This research will test a new program that has been developed with the aim of helping families understand more about their baby’s early communication abilities. We are hoping to learn how to best support parents before and after the birth of their child in order to boost the quality of parent-baby interactions.
Cashew - Recent Australian research has found that approximately one in twenty school students have a food allergy, and peanut and cashew nut allergies are most common. We are looking to find out whether eating cashew nut spreads in the first year of life can reduce the chances a baby will develop a cashew nut food allergy.
The Plan Project - The PLAN project will examine epigenetic biomarkers (differential DNA methylation), determining if these are modified by optimisation of gestational weight gain or associated maternal lifestyle changes. Find out more
