Research Impact

UQ’s IMB is driven to using life science research for discovery, invention and application.

IMB’s combination of genomics, biostatistical, biological, pharmacological and chemical researchers means the Institute can take life science discoveries from the genome to drug design and application – for health, disease and for the sustainable solutions for our cities, fuels and foods. 

Over $370M has been invested in IP generated at IMB, and over the past five years, IMB has attracted nearly $250M in research funding, leveraging federal and state government funding sources to address life research across all sectors. Our research excellence and translational impact is underpinned by the quality of our internationally recognised researchers  and state-of-the art facilities.
