The University of Queensland

Our world-renowned biomedical researchers and clinicians use new patient-orientated approaches and research technologies to improve health and wellbeing. Our location within the Southern Hemisphere’s largest health science research hub enables doctors and researchers to work side-by-side to improve the health of people everywhere. We achieve this by finding new ways to detect and prevent disease and by pioneering new intervention and treatment methods across: cancer; brain and mental health; infection and immunity; and mothers, babies and lifelong health research themes.
