    The world's longest running multidisciplinary health and development study has marked 50 years today

    The world's longest running multidisciplinary health and development study has marked 50 years today


    One-thousand and thirty-seven babies were enlisted to be part of the Dunedin Study over the year from April 1, 1972.

    Since then, researchers have published more than 14-hundred reports on human health and development.

    Dunedin Study director professor Richie Poulton has been involved for 37 years.

    He says someone once told him research is 1 percent romance and the rest is tedious - but he finds it all fascinating.
