  3. The current medical process of identifying biotoxin-related illness in patients and the medical evaluation of symptom complexes attributed to biotoxins and CIRS;
  4. Any intersection with other chronic diseases;
  5. Investment in contemporary Australian research to discover and provide evidence of CIRS as a chronic, multisystem disease;
  6. Research into biotoxin-related illness caused from water damaged buildings; and
