Gay Bodies Worldwide
Gay Bodies Worldwide is a research study about the body image of gay and bisexual men. Study participants will be surveyed 10 times over 5 years, providing insight into how gay and bisexual mens' thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about physical appearance change as they grow older. Findings from Gay Bodies Worldwide will transform our understanding of physical appearance phenomena among gay and bisexual men, and will help us develop new treatments for life-threatening body image and eating disorders.
The Victorian Oral Microbiome and Lifestyle Study
The Victorian Oral Microbiome and Lifestyle Study aims to better understand the bacteria that live in our mouths, and how they vary with different lifestyles, diets, and backgrounds.We are exploring how these bacteria differ depending on where we live (such as different neighbourhoods, and near parks or farms), and how our health behaviours vary (such as dental care, and antibiotic use).The data will be used to contribute to academic research at the University of Melbourne. The results are also being included in a dynamic visual installation in Melbourne Museum’s Gut Feelings exhibition, March – November 2019.
