Our research institutes are known and respected across the world. Our contribution to both the body of knowledge and translational outcomes from ‘bench to bedside’ is of global significance. It is our intent that the quality of our research will be regarded as the leading standard making a tangible impact on health outcomes at a national and international level.

We are clear about the direct link between the quality of our graduates and the contribution they make to health outcomes, future learning and discovery in Queensland, Australia and across the globe. UQ graduates must be seen by our health and industry partners to be their future employees of choice.
