Corporate partnerships

Together we will transform tomorrow with discoveries that change lives

Twenty years ago, the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) was the vision of collaboration between government, philanthropy and UQ to set a bold mission to position Queensland as the epicenter for drug discovery. Whether it be for cancer, heart, kidney, infectious disease such as COVID-19, chronic pain, stroke or diseases in plants and animals - IMB is where drug discovery and cures start.

The Institute's success ensures The University of Queensland is a global leader in life science research. The diversity of our researchers and our research across the diverse disciplines of chemistry, computational biology, genetics, genomics, solar biotechnology means we see what others can’t.

We deliver solutions to real-world problems that matter.

100% of donations received go directly to funding UQ’s game changer health and environmental research. It is only with the support of generous donors and partners that we can continue to drive discovery to realise new drugs and treatments for diseases and disorders, pesticides and solar technologies that are more affordable, sustainable and accessible for Queenslanders and beyond.

Creating change is only possible with your partnership. Get in touch with us today to find out how.
