Recent European research has identified a potentially worrying relationship between vitamin D status and local measures of air quality. Is there an association between air quality and vitamin D levels in young women living in Victoria? This project will explore a possible association between air quality in postcode of residence and serum vitamin D levels in young women. Validated models of air quality based on monitored levels of air pollution will be applied to study these relationships. Suitable for Honours, MDRP, MBiomedSc, MPH, or Masters by Research studies.
This research project is available to Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
