Forensic and Scientific Services (FSS) is a diverse organisation which provides specialist analytical services and expert advice to a range of government and industry clients. Fundamental to the growth, relevance and innovation of our scientific service delivery is our Research and Development Program.
There are currently over 30 dedicated research projects being undertaken by staff throughout our laboratories. These projects vary from leading-edge research on current outbreaks such as the Hendra virus, to mapping of radiological water quality and technological advancements in forensic analysis.
The majority of projects are funded internally. However, there are an increasing number of projects funded collaboratively through external research programs.
