Research Facilities

Platform technologies are one of the primary enablers of discovery and innovation. IMB, in partnership with the University, government and funding agencies, has invested heavily in cutting-edge technologies that can transform approaches to solving problems and answering questions.

From high performance computing, Lattice Light Sheet Microscopy and other forms of laser imaging, to NMR, mass spectrometry, and crystallisation facilities that act as a conduit to the Australian Synchrotron, the IMB has a range of research infrastructure facilities that create unparalleled opportunities to afford breakthrough discoveries in fundamental and applied sciences, as well as supporting translation for industry needs.


All IMB facilities are subsidised by the Institute and are available on a user-pays system to scientists within the UQ research community.

To inquire about the use of an IMB facility, please contact the relevant facility manager or support staff.
