RESEARCH PARTICIPATION

There are a number of research projects being conducted at the MNC looking for participants - do you want to help? 

Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre (MNC) at the University of Melbourne, is undertaking leading clinical research in psychiatric illness. This research will promote early detection and diagnosis and provide new ways to improve treatment.

The Victorian Oral Microbiome and Lifestyle Study has two parts, and you can choose to only do the first part. Part 1 is at the Melbourne Museum on specific dates, and involves a questionnaire, height and weight measurement, and dribbling saliva into a plastic tube.

If you are interested, you can also choose to complete Part 2, which is a longer questionnaire you can do later, in your own time. A summary of each part is provided below.
