Current Governance Structure
TAHS continues to be based at the University of Melbourne with Shyamali Dharmage as the current principal investigator and has now expanded into a national collaborative program.
The respiratory project is a partnership between the University of Melbourne, Menzies Research Institute, Monash University, Universities of Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, administered jointly by the University of Melbourne and Menzies Research Institute, co-directed by Shyamali Dharmage and Haydn Walters. Although originally a study of respiratory disease, because of the population-based nature of the cohort, the length of follow-up the and the opportunities for a general health study, TAHS research is now extending to other areas such as breast cancer, eye disease, hematology, and social science. TAHS is managed by a steering committee that is responsible for developing policies related to access to data and biological specimens, authorship, and expansion of research into other areas
