Professor Lidia Morawska leads our International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health, which is a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre on Air Quality and Health.
We have established an excellent reputation for environmental health research across a range of areas including health impact assessments of climate change, UV radiation and indoor air pollution.
Our academic staff are internationally recognised for their research expertise.
An emphasis on environmental health and sustainable development ensures our research efforts are underpinned by strong quantitative risk assessment techniques, which are essential in contemporary cutting-edge public health research.
Our programs focus on:
- sun and health
- indoor air quality
- global environmental changes and population health.
- International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health (ILAQH)
- Centre for Research Excellence in Sun and Health (CRESH)
