The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute (UQDI) is a modern research facility where clinical and basic science are used to study diseases such as cancer, immune disorders, chronic diseases and infection. The Institute has a vibrant community of over 200 researchers, students and support staff. We have delivered global, world-changing discoveries to humanity, such as the world’s first cervical cancer vaccine.
Based at Brisbane’s leading teaching hospital, the Princess Alexandra Hospital, and directly linked to the University’s St Lucia campus by bridge and the Eastern Busway, the University of Queensland Diamantina Institute has strong clinical interactions and world-class facilities. Our researchers work with clinicians to focus efforts on turning scientific discoveries into better treatments in diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and the body’s response to infection.
The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute focuses on bringing the discoveries of basic science to the patient. Over recent decades, the gap between the laboratory and medicine has widened as science has become increasingly complex.
The UQDI therefore aims to translate the greatest opportunities for research discoveries into the cause, mechanism, prevention and treatment of major disease. Patient-based studies for testing new drugs and therapies for autoimmune diseases and cancers are undertaken at the UQDI to the highest possible ethical standard.
UQDI Key Research Themes
- Bone and joint disease
Announcement of successful applicants will be announced in April 2013.
