To ensure we stay at the forefront of education and research in biomedicine, medicine and public health, our Faculty has invested substantially in the construction of purpose built environments in which to study medical phenomena. 


The $24 million Herston Imaging Research Facility (HIRF) is one of only a handful of imaging research facilities in Australia and the first to be devoted entirely to clinical research. HIRF has been built to cater for the growing role of imaging in clinical research.
International leaders in specialist paediatric and adolescent research are among 450 staff collaborating under one roof to significantly improve the lives of seriously ill children.
The $1.5 million Integrated Pathology Learning Centre, the first of its kind in Australia, brings together more than 2,500 specimen and artefacts from the Marks Hirschfield Medical History Collection, the Nursing Museum and the latest electronic teaching resources.
In partnership with the Queensland Government and major United States philanthropic organisation, The Atlantic Philanthropies, the AUD$70 million UQCCR facility has been designed to bridge the gap between exponentially expanding biomedical science and the increasing complexity of modern patient care.
To support its research, the Children's Nutrition Research Centre has one of the world's best equipped body composition laboratories, with a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment for non-invasively assessing body composition in health and disease.
UQDI is home to the UQ Centre for Clinical Genomics, the most sophisticated and largest human genomic facility in the southern hemisphere. The Centre undertakes cutting-edge genetics and genomics studies.
CIPDD has state-of-the-art physical infrastructure located in NATA-accredited facilities on the St Lucia and Herston Campuses of The University of Queensland (UQ).
The $2 million DIOCC is based at The University of Queensland’s Diamantina Institute. The facility is within the southern hemisphere’s largest and most sophisticated genome sequencing centre and will boost research into skin, blood and breast cancers.
The Translational Research Institute (TRI) is a unique, Australian-first initiative of ‘bench to bedside’ medical research. TRI combines clinical and translational research to advance progress from laboratory discovery to application in the community. UQ is one of four partners in TRI.
Based at our Greenslopes Clinical Unit, this facility features purpose-built simulated emergency bays, operating theatres and hospital wards to provide a safe environment for healthcare students and professionals to engage in high and low fidelity simulated learning activities.
UQ is home to one of the world’s largest anatomy teaching facilities. Training in anatomy and anatomical examination allows students and researchers in health, medical and science disciplines to understand the complexities and infinite structural variations of the human body.
The Marks-Hirschfeld Museum of Medical History is one of the nest collections of medical instruments and memorabilia in Australia.
