Participant in our research
There is an abundance of research demonstrating the interplay of the microbiome and diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, and liver disease however, there still a massive gap in our understanding of what a “normal” and “healthy” microbiome looks like. Through the Healthy Optimal Australian Microbiome Study, researchers at UNSW Microbiome Research Centre hope to shed some light on this by defining what the ultimate-healthy and normal microbiome looks like.
We are currently recruiting people planning a pregnancy for The MothersBabies Study, a world-first pre-pregnancy study looking to uncover how a person’s microbiome changes from pre-pregnancy, throughout pregnancy, up until the baby’s first birthday, so that mums and bubs the world over may have the healthiest start to life.
Researchers within the Sydney+ IBD Research Consortia and the Microbiome Research Centre, UNSW Sydney are inviting people with inflammatory bowel disease, their family members and the general population to learn about the changes in the human microbiome.
Healthy ageing and microbiome researchers are seeking more than 150 Sydney-based older adults, aged 60-70 years, for a trial testing whether taking dietary supplements can help improve frailty and inflammation. The Frailty, Ageing and Inflammation Trial for Health (FAITH) is being led by the School of Population Health at UNSW Sydney, Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), and the Microbiome Research Centre (MRC), St George & Sutherland Clinical School.
