Join Us

Maridulu Budyari Gumal, the Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research and Enterprise (SPHERE) has partnered with Join Us to save lives and improve the health of all Australians and we need your help!

Australia has world class health and medical researchers who have been responsible for many life-changing breakthroughs that have benefitted the Australian and international community.

But the ability to conduct this research in Australia depends on being able to recruit enough people into studies which can take many months and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars to do. Many studies fall over at this hurdle because they just don't get enough people to participate.

That’s why The George Institute in partnership with the University of New South Wales has launched a register called Join Us, which aims to recruit a million Australians who agree to be contacted if there is a study that might be appropriate for them.

By signing on to the Join Us register, you will be helping researchers all around the country to prevent, treat and find cures for disease. There is no cost and once you sign up there’s no obligation to participate in research - you're simply agreeing to be contacted about studies that might be relevant to you. It will always be your choice whether you want to take part!

Ultimately, the goal of this project is to achieve better health and wellbeing for all Australians by more rapidly translating new research findings into practice.

We would love your support to help Australian researchers save lives and improve the health of all Australians.
