Industry and Science Supporting Science and Commercialisation Science awareness, infrastructure & international engagement DustSafe citizen insights to the composition and risk MACQUARIE UNIVERSITY

Dust can contain harmful agents that penetrate deep into lungs and migrate into the blood stream. Information on the composition and risks associated with house dust is largely absent and households do not know how to reduce risks. This project will address this knowledge gap by engaging with citizens to submit vacuum dust samples for chemical and biological analysis.
