The IMB Translation Sub-Committee is a joint initiative of IMB and the IMB Advisory Board. It supports and encourages a culture of translation and innovation within the institute.

The sub-committee complements the work and expertise of UniQuest, UQ’s commercialisation company, which has prime responsibility for managing the commercialisation of IMB’s intellectual property portfolio. 

Primarily, the sub-committee advises, supports and encourages the institute’s researchers—particularly early career researchers—who are seeking assistance and motivation to start the process of translating their research.
