Diving research began more than a century ago when diving was the exclusive domain of those who worked underwater or in pressurized environments such as tunnels. The questions that researchers had back then were just as fascinating as the questions we are asking today. Diving research always had and will always have the same objective: to make diving safer.
DAN’s mission is to make every dive accident-free. The research conducted at DAN, both in-house and in collaboration with distinguished scientists and research institutions, usually falls under one of these four focus areas:
- Health and Diving
- Decompression Safety
- Prevention of Diving Injuries
- Treatment of Diving Injuries
With the challenges of an ongoing pandemic, new advances in diving technology, an aging diving population, and the increasingly competitive and extreme nature in dive explorations, there are many questions that have not been answered or even asked before. DAN Research remains an open mind to new project proposals.
Whether you are looking for funding or expert advice for your own research study or you’d like to participate as a research subject, volunteer during research events, or help the DAN Research team rating post-dive echocardiograms, we have opportunities for everyone to get involved.
