About The Raine Study
The Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study is one of the largest prospective cohorts of pregnancy, childhood, adolescence and now early adulthood to be carried out anywhere in the world. It’s purpose is to improve human health and well-being, through the study of a cohort of Western Australians from before birth onwards. It was established between 1989 and 1991 to determine how events during pregnancy and childhood influence health in later life. 2900 pregnant women entered the study and 2868 live births (index participants) were recruited into the Raine Study cohort. The Raine Study has now become a multi-generational study with participation of the Raine Study index participants (Generation 2), their parents (Generation 1), their Grandparents (Generation 0) and their children (Generation 3).
What was the programme of the day?
Invitations to submit an abstract
All Raine Study researchers were invited to submit an abstract to present their research findings at the Raine Study Annual Scientific Meeting [8 minute oral presentation followed by 2 minutes of questions from the floor].
We are especially keen to have early career researchers and PhD students from each of the Special Interest Groups present.
The Raine Medical Research Foundation had kindly donated two prizes ($750) for the best presentations by students and early career researchers.
