Seeking research participants: UV cameras and sunscreen use

Dr Elke Hacker from the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) is seeking participants for a research study using UV cameras. You may be eligible to participate if you are 18 years of age or older. Individuals will not be able to participate if they have an allergy to sunscreen.

Participants will be asked to visit IHBI to complete a brief demographics survey and apply two moisturiser products with an SPF content supplied by the research team to the left and right side of their face. Photos will be taken of the participants face with a UV camera before, immediately and 20 minutes after application of the moisturiser with SPF. You will be asked to participate in a 5-10 minute audio-recorded interview and asked to comment about your thoughts on the products applied.

Please view the Information-Sheet for further details on the study and how to participate. To register or for more information email

Please note if you have previously participated in UV camera studies at QUT, you are not eligible for this current study.

Participants who complete all study procedures may enter a prize draw to win a $50 Myer e-gift card.

Please note that this study has been approved by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1800001263).
