In the past five years, local, national and international collaborative activity in the Raine Study has increased.

The number of Raine Study Research Groups has increased from 15 in 2009 to 25 in 2013 with eminent Western Australian researchers joining the Raine Study community in the following research areas: anaesthesia, child development, endocrinology, epigenetics, growth, Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis, ophthalmology, otolaryngology and sleep.

The Raine Study has genotyped the study participants. DNA has been collected on many of their mothers and fathers. The Raine Study Genetic Epidemiology group, under the leadership of Craig Pennell is now a member of several international genetic consortium networks established to facilitate collaborative genome wide association studies.
