Love durians? Here’s a chance to enjoy them free daily for a couple of weeks.
SingHealth x DukeNUS Research Study
Our nation’s healthcare group SingHealth is inviting staff volunteers who are also durian lovers to participate in a research study to understand if durians have any impact on the human microbiome and metabolome.
The study is organised in partnership with DukeNUS Institute of Biodiversity Medicine.
Study criteria specify the age group between 21 and 60 years old in good general health and must agree to consume durian daily for 2 weeks. The participants must also maintain a low-fibre diet during the study period, provide stool and blood samples and complete questionnaires.
What’s more, successfully invited participants will also be reimbursed for their time.
However, do note that the study is not open to the public but only to staff volunteers from these SingHealth institutions below:
- Singapore General Hospital
- National Cancer Centre Singapore
- National Heart Centre Singapore
- National Dental Centre Singapore
- Singapore National Eye Centre
- National Neuroscience Institute
- Changi General Hospital
- KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital

So tell your friends or family members if they work in any of the health institutions stated above, especially if they can’t resist durians.
