Generation Victoria (GenV) Cohort 2020s Statement of Intent

The Generation Victoria (GenV) Cohort 2020s Statement of Intent is an outline of the entire GenV project. It outlines the project design, recruitment approach, data domains, risk, data & biosample management and operational details. Before state-wide recruitment, GenV will operate in select ‘test’ or Vanguard hospitals. More detailed protocols will be developed for these phases as addendums to this Statement of Intent. This is version two and was endorsed by the Human Research and Ethics Committee at the Royal Children’s Hospital in September 2019.
