If this is your first appointment, please bring:
We are very grateful for your contribution. In our studies we measure body fat content, metabolic rate, and a variety of other measures designed to tell us more about insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
Before you undergo any testing, one of the research team will send you information detailing any testing we require as part of the study. We then follow-up with a phone call, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions.
If you are happy to proceed you then undergo a screening process to ensure you are eligible for the study. This involves a telephone questionnaire, and if that is successful, then a visit to the Clinical Research Facility at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Darlinghurst.
If you are interested in volunteering for one of our studies into insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes please contact us.
