The Minderoo Foundation

The Minderoo Foundation is collaborating with QAEHS and the Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) to enable development of novel mass spectrometry protocols to measure plastic in human post-mortem brain as well as blood and urine. The mass spectrometry techniques will be developed in a world leading low-contamination laboratory established at QAEHS.
