The Faculty of Medicine is committed to maximising opportunites for researchers to obtain research funding. Please refer to the links below for more information on available assistance for your research. 


Faculty Research Events

All upcoming and past workshop presentations from the Faculty are available to view via the intranet.

The Faculties of Medicine, Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT) are holding the Medical Problems - Technical Solutions Symposium consisting of a series of 3 minute thesis-style talks. The talks will cover a variety of current medical problems our clinicians are facing, and engineering research programs with potential clinical aplications. This will be followed by a discussion on the potential funding opportunities for medical-engineering collaborative research projects. 

The event will be held on 9 June 2016 from 8:00am till 13:30pm at UQCCR Auditorium, Herston Campus.

Grant preparation

Grants Library

The UQR&I Grants Library provides UQ researchers with a valuable resource for drafting and preparing research proposals.

Budget Preparation

When preparing the budget for research grant applications or negotiating a budget for contract research, it is important to consider both the direct costs and indirect costs (overheads) associated with the proposed program of research.

UQ Library Research Impact

Further information on research outputs, metrics and ESI is available from the UQ Library website.

You may also contact your RIS (Research Information Service) Librarian for queries on bibliometrics.

The UQ Library, through its Research Support services, can offer support to researchers who are seeking assistance with data management planning: including what a plan should cover, and tools such as checklists and templates to help you create a plan.

UQ Library Online Data Management Planning Tool

DMP Online is a tool to help you write a data management plan.  The tool has been developed by UQ Library based on the model created by the UK Digital Curation Centre.

Please familiarise yourself with UQ Research Data Management Policy and the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research before you start.

Integrity and Compliance - Human & Animal Ethics

UQR&I provide important information for both human and animal ethical clearance. Please keep up to date with the interim arrangements in place from 1 December 2015, as the University transitions to its new 2016 Human Ethics Committee frameworks.

Managing your project

Faculty and Institute Research Liaisons

Faculty and Institute Research Liaisons provide research management support to the Associate Deans, Research and Deputy Institute Directors in the key functional areas of research administration.

Statistical support

The Faculty of Medicine provides a statistical advisory service to Faculty of Medicine Academics and Academic Title Holders, Higher Degree Research (HDR) students and MD/MBBS students undertaking research within the Faculty of Medicine.

This service is provided through the School of Public Health’s Queensland Clinical Trials and Biostatistics Centre, with Dr Michael David providing consultation and advice to guide research design.

To access this service, please download and complete the Statistical Support Service Request and email the completed form to Dr Michael David with a copy to Alison Manley Please submit your request well in advance, as appointments may not be available at short notice, particularly in peak periods.

Please note for HDR and MD/MBBS research students, your principal supervisor must approve the request prior to submitting a request form. Approval may be provided by an email approval or signing the request form.
