The Respiratory Protection Engineering Task Force is a group of researchers based at Cambridge University, dedicated to investigating and advancing the science of face masks, face coverings and half-face respirators. Our research seeks to empower main communities: healthcare workers, mask designers, and civilians.
Our goals are to help provide the engineering research required both to enable individuals to make educated decisions about protecting themselves and to enable designers, including home sewers and small-scale designers, to create the best possible protective masks. We take a systems approach to mask science - evaluating problems from systems, people, design, and risk perspectives.
