When does the study take place?

  • Due to the recent developments with COVID-19, the study has been put on hold indefinitely in accordance with Monash University social distancing policies. This means that we cannot guarantee when the next intake dates will be.
  • However, the lab stays are always from Sunday afternoon to Thursday evening, a week apart.

Can me and my partner/friend be in the study together?

  • Friends cannot participate together in the same intake, but can participate separately in different intakes.

I’m not 21 yet, can I still be in the study?

  • No, you must wait until you are 21 in order to be enrolled in the study. If you are still interested in participating we are happy to take your details and recontact you at a later date once you have turned 21.
