Recruiting study volunteers for brain disease research

News story

The key to improving outcomes for patients with degenerative brain diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease could be sitting right there in our kitchens and in the meals we eat. 

Research at the Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute (CHIRI) is telling us this is a possibility and PhD student Zac D’Alonzo is recruiting participants for a study to further investigate this line of research inquiry.

Study participants will be invited to consume meals containing one of two plant-derived oils, or no oil. Several small blood samples are subsequently taken for analysis.

To arrange a pre-study screening to see if you qualify, and to find out more please register your interest or contact CHIRI by phone 0404 411 589 or email.

If selected, you will receive a range of results from the study that are relevant to heart health. You would also receive a voucher for your time commitment upon the study’s completion.

By participating in this study you will be supporting CHIRI’s work to identify new prevention and treatment strategies for adult diseases.
