Early origins, progression and aetiology of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes: a 30 year follow-up study (2010–2014)

This research proposal aims to use the unique existing Mater University Study of Pregnancy (MUSP) and its offspring data and conduct a 30-year follow-up of MUSP children to investigate the early origins, progression and casual pathways of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes for young Australians. Findings of this study will extend our understanding of the factors driving these health problems with the ultimate aim of being able to reverse the obesity epidemic and improve public health.
