Leading innovation and discovery to improve the lives of people affected by asbestos related disease
The National Centre for Asbestos-Related Diseases (NCARD) was established as a national cooperative research centre in 2007 in Perth, Western Australia by the Commonwealth government. NCARD continues as an National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recognised Centre of Research Excellence (CRE).
The NCARD aim is to enable the best Australian scientists, clinicians and researchers in the field, using the best available modern technology, to work cooperatively to prevent, monitor, treat, and/or cure asbestos cancers in the shortest realistic timeframe. This is expanded in our Strategic Plan.
NCARD has an excellent track record in attracting competitive research grants, both from Australian and international sources.
