The RDI Resource Laboratory has conducted laboratory, environmental, and public health research for over 5 years, much of which is in collaboration with Master’s and PhD students at universities from around the world. This site links to information on current and historical research projects and provides information on how to work collaboratively with RDI on environmental and public health research in Cambodia. RDI has a variety of research interests, some of which are listed on this page, but we are always open to ideas from prospective collaborators. Email research@rdic.org for more details.
