About the organisation
The Asbestos Diseases Research Foundation (ADRF) was established in 2006 as a charitable, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assist and support the research efforts into asbestos and other dust-related diseases. Australia has the world’s highest incidence of malignant mesothelioma per capita, with more than 600 new cases diagnosed each year. As a response to this legacy, the ADRF established the Asbestos Diseases Research Institute (ADRI). The ADRI is an independent medical research institute located on the Concord Hospital Campus, opened in 2009. The ADRI aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of asbestos-related diseases and at the same time to contribute to more effective measures to prevent exposure to asbestos.
