GASSI Study

Healthy gut

Gut Health in Australia and Singapore for Science and Innovation (GASSI)

Gut health is essential for well-being, but unfortunately many people around the world suffer from poor gut health. The GASSI study is a unique collaboration between scientists in Singapore and Australia. This project is a two-part study (online questionnaire and breath testing) to examine gut health in Singaporeans and Australians, looking into the similarities and differences in the experiences of gut health. The aim of this research is to find ways that gut health solutions can be targeted to meet the needs of each country.

How can you help?
We are looking for volunteers to participate in our online questionnaire.

By participating in the questionnaire, you will provide valuable contribution to the understanding of gut health issues, an area that has received limited research attention in Singapore. The findings from this study will help provide insights for the development of personalised gut-friendly foods.

Who are we looking for?       

  • Singaporeans/Singapore Permanent Residents
  • Adults (aged ≥ 21 years)
  • Able to read and understand English

At the end of the questionnaire, participants may express their interest to join the second part of the study – breath testing for malabsorption.
