Out with Cancer
Previous research suggests LGBTQI+ communities experience a disproportionate cancer burden and face unique psychosocial challenges. The Out with Cancer study is investigating LGBTQI+ experiences of cancer and cancer care, and of medical interventions to reduce cancer risk. Information from this study will be used to develop better information for LGBTQI+ people with cancer and their carers.

Parenthood changes a person’s life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and environmentally. Despite this, there is very little known about the effect of parenthood on human cognition. Therefore, in this project, we are seeking to understand the effects of parenthood on human cognition across the first two years of a child’s life. To do this, Monash University is recruiting parents with at least one child who is aged between 0 and 24 months, and individuals who do not have children.
