The ORIGINS Project
Joondalup Health Campus is proud to collaborate with Telethon Kids Institute on The ORIGINS Project. The ORIGINS Project is the largest study of its kind in Australia, following 10,000 children and their families over a decade to improve child and adult health and to uncover the causes of chronic conditions such as asthma, eczema, obesity and mental ill health.
The unique study is one of the most comprehensive studies of pregnant women and their families in Australia to date, and only recruits families whose babies are born at the Joondalup Health Campus. The project is funded by the Paul Ramsay Foundation and the Commonwealth Government through Telethon7.
Six years into this 10-year long study, recruitment of active participants is now complete. However, families are still able to contribute to life-changing research by becoming a "Routine Data" participant when giving birth at Joondalup Health Campus, allowing the ORIGINS team access to you and your baby’s routinely collected information.
ORIGINS team members will be frequently available at the public antenatal clinic or you can learn more and register your interest on the ORIGINS website at the link below.
Find out what is involved in becoming a Routine Data participant of ORIGINS
By becoming a Routine Data participant, your family’s information can help ORIGINS researchers to uncover when and why chronic conditions develop, leading to the discovery of new treatments and prevention, potentially improving the health of your own child’s generation as well as that of future generations.
