Donate to our research

20 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.

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.

Why I support IMB

Philanthropy in action

“Without innovation there is no growth, there is no progress. It’s really important to us to support the scientists with their ideas, because it’s very difficult to actually get funding.

— Sophie and Andrew Courtney, donors
