Research

Our research has raised levels of awareness and understanding of current and emerging health, safety and wellbeing issues with government, industry and the public.

Our research covers cancer, air pollution, chemical and dust exposure, musculoskeletal injuries, nanomaterials, agriculture, farming and pesticides.

Our mission began in 1969 with the internationally ground-breaking research on lung disease in coal mine workers. Over the decades, we have produced multiple landmark studies, taking us from coal dust, asbestos, carbon nanotubes to air pollution. Early on, we recognised and developed an innovative multi-disciplinary approach to public health research — one that is widely replicated today across the globe in many organisations and institutions.

Our experts are recognised internationally as leading thinkers in their subject areas. In many cases, our people have made it their life’s work to uphold our values, and that’s an essential part of how we deliver our mission of providing a healthy and sustainable world.
