Proudly partnering with QENDO

UQ's Institute for Molecular Bioscience is delighted to continue their partnership with QENDO to fund world leading research to put an end to endometriosis this March for Endometriosis awareness month.

Endometriosis affects an estimated 176 million women worldwide regardless of their ethnic and social background. Many remain undiagnosed and are therefore not treated. QENDO is a community of brave, bold and beautiful people who understand that we are stronger together, providing support, education and awareness for any one affected by endometriosis, adenomyosis, PCOS or infertility across Australia and New Zealand. 

Funds raised in partnership with QENDO will be dedicated to fund the salaries of early-career endometriosis researchers, thus investing in the next generation of endometriosis research in Australia. Learn more here.
