The Look Study
The LOOK Study is a collaborative, multidisciplinary, longitudinal study beginning in childhood and finishing in old age. Its main objective is to determine how physical activity and early physical education impact upon quality of life not just in childhood and adolescence but right through a lifetime.
This Primary School phase of the project was funded by the Commonwealth Institute from 2004 to 2007 and by CET from 2007 to 2009. To provide a long term future for the study, CET gifted the research assets to the Australian National University at the end of 2010. The study is now based at the Australian National University (Medical Faculty and Department of Psychology) and the Canberra Hospital (which is the clinical practice arm of the ANU Medical Faculty).
