Event: -

What is the study? We are researchers at the University of South Australia and we want to understand more about the relationship between diet & lifestyle and cognitive function in cancer survivors.


Who can participate? We are looking for Australians who:

  • Were diagnosed with primary breast, bowel or colorectal cancer as an adult

  • Were diagnosed between 6 months and 5 years ago

  • Are at least 18 years old, fluent in English and have computer & internet access

    Have not:

  • In the last 3 months had chemo-, radio-, immunotherapy or surgery for cancer (hormone treatment ok)

  • Had a traumatic head/brain injury, stroke or TIA in the last 10 years

  • Ever been diagnosed with MS, dementia, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease

  • And are not currently pregnant/breastfeeding

    What does it involve?

  • If eligible, putting aside 2.5 hours in the morning at home where you won't be disturbed and can be fasting since midnight. In this session you will collect and return a finger-prick blood sample (we send you a kit), complete online questionnaires about cognition, diet, lifestyle and cancer, and complete online cognitive exercises.

    What's in it for me? A $50 honorarium and a brief dietary report.

    Any questions? Visit to answer screening questions to determine your eligibility, or contact us at or on 08 8302 1968. This project has been approved by the University of South Australia's Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 202999).
