Dunedin Study subject of exhibition

Setting up for the Dunedin Study Exhibition in Dunedin are exhibition curator Sean Hogan (left) and New Zealand International Science Festival director Dan Hendra.

Mr Hogan said the exhibition, in the former Smith City building in South Dunedin, would provide an insight into participants of the Dunedin Study.

The study began in 1972 and follows more than 1000 participants throughout their lives. The participants were "the most studied people in the world", he said.

The exhibition would showcase rooms styled around each decade of the participants’ lives, detailing the changes that took place over time.

Mr Hendra said the project was a collaboration between the Dunedin Study and the science festival, and would run from June 1 to at least the end of the festival, which would run from July 8 to July 18.
