Research priorities

Our research priorities translate good science into relevant public and environmental health outcomes, legislation and policy, and help improve the safety and security of Queenslanders.

Forensic and Scientific Services is the only laboratory in Australia to provide both forensic and public health services in one location. Our research priorities are diverse and encompass areas such as biology, chemistry, radiology, and forensic medicine and science.
