Ever wanted to be part of a research project aimed at improving the health outcomes of our communities?

If you are a healthy 18-25-year-old now is your chance! The Telethon Kids Institute are involved in an exciting study looking at a new Pertussis (Whooping Cough) vaccine in the hope that it will provide a longer lasting and superior immunity to this disease.

Want to be part of a clinical trial aimed at evaluating the safety and tolerability of a new investigational DNA vaccine to protect against SARS CoV-2 virus also know as COVID-19? 


With the support of the Australian Government through the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), an extended Phase 1 Human Trial in Australia will evaluate COVIGEN, a COVID-19 needle-free DNA-based vaccine. COVIGEN is a naked DNA based vaccine which has been already tested in preclinical studies.
