Covid-19 research

We are drawing on our extensive experience in air quality to support the fight against Covid-19. In collaboration with partners around the world, we are part of the international effort making a case for the recognition of airborne transmission.


Among other projects, we are studying the impact lockdown is having on air quality in cities around the world, and investigating how different types of face mask offer protection from infection in enclosed public spaces. Read about some specific examples of our Covid-19 research.
