Pulling the pieces together to see the bigger picture and asking the burning questions.

The IMB nurtures an environment that fosters breakthrough science through collaboration, innovative ideas and taking calculated risk.

We push through the boundaries, go beyond the known, the safe and the normal, using cutting edge technologies to discover, transform and translate.

Our discoveries create change for the global health of our people and environment.

  • An IMB graduate will use a Fulbright scholarship to study at Stanford University to address some of the world's biggest challenges - how to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
  • Massive banks of genetic information are being harnessed to shed new light on modifiable health risks that underlie common diseases.

    University of Queensland researchers have pioneered a method to integrate data from multiple large-scale studies to assess risk factors such as body mass index (BMI) and cholesterol levels, and their association with diseases including type two diabetes and heart disease.
