2023 Generations Follow-up

In 2023 we will start conducting our new follow-up which will involve two generations of Raine Study participants. This follow-up will involve our original Raine babies who were born between 1989-1992 (known as Gen2) as well as their biological parents (known as Gen1). We will be calling this follow-up the Generations follow-up to reflect the exciting multigenerational nature of this research.
 As we are preparing for the Generations follow-up, you may have received some messages from our team checking if all your details are all correct in our system. To ensure you are included in this follow-up, we need to make sure all your contact details are up to date. You can update your details by reaching out to us via email at or fill out our online contact details form

Cohort Involvement

We’ve been busy here at the Raine Study as we prepare for our Generations follow-up so we would like to thank all of our participants who have helped us with recent projects. Thank you to everyone who participated in our participant focus groups to give feedback to researchers on proposed projects utilising Raine data, this feedback truly helps shape Raine Study research. 

We’ve also had a few photo and video projects we were lucky enough to have participants be involved with! With the help of some amazing participants, we filmed a video showcasing the core measures of the Generations follow-up and the new rooms you’ll see when you come in next year. We’ve also been collecting participant photos to display at our Raine Study Symposium. If you have a family photo, a photo of your Gen3 Raine drop, or just a photo of you in your day-to-day life, send it in to Sending in photos will put you in the draw to win one of six $30 Coles/Myers gift vouchers. Thank you to everyone who has sent in photos already, we can’t wait to show you all off!
RSCAC Committee

The Raine Study Community Advisory Committee (RSCAC) consists of participants representing both our Gen1 and Gen2 cohort groups, who meet quarterly with the Raine Study team and researchers as well as advise a variety of Raine Study committees. RSCAC is a fundamental part of the Raine Study and is helps guide the future direction of the Raine Study, providing input into issues raised by staff, researchers and our partners.
Goodbye to one of our RSCAC members...

We want to thank Claire for all her support and contribution to the RSCAC as she moves on to further her career overseas. Claire said that the RSCAC was a great opportunity to contribute to the community, learn about new studies and be able to help shape Raine Study research.

Claire, thank you for everything and all the best for the future!
