Western Australia is an amazing place to call home. And right now, you have the opportunity to make it even better.
Join our movement to help our state become the healthiest and happiest in Australia. By taking part in important research projects, you'll be giving back to your community and influencing decisions that affect us all.
We also invite you to become a champion, helping to grow our network of participants to ensure all Western Australians are well represented.
We can achieve this by connecting Western Australians from all walks of life with important research projects. Researchers are able to promote the type of research they are conducting and invite interested people to contribute.
The more people that participate, the greater the quality and influence of our research.
