Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland

IMB is a global leader in multidisciplinary life sciences research, bringing together 500 researchers from across the globe for disease discovery, application and sustainable futures. 

Formed in 2000 as an initiative of The University of Queensland, State and Federal Governments and private philanthropy, IMB is one of the largest life sciences institutes in the Asia-Pacific region. It has capitalised on one of the greatest periods of discovery in history – the genetic and molecular basis of life and its diversity.

Our research is framed through six research centres focusing on superbug infection, pain, heart disease, inflammation, solar biotechnology and the interplay of genomics and disease. We also undertake research in cancer, brain injury and disease, the environment and agricultural solutions. 

Institute scientists use a range of model systems and facilities to advance their research in chemistry and structural biology, genomics of development and disease, and in cell biology and molecular medicine.

IMB’s combination of life, pharmacological and chemical researchers means that the Institute can take life science discoveries from genome to drug design and application – for health, disease and for the sustainability of our cities, fuels and foods.

IMB is proud of its strong reputation as a generator of new knowledge. With 66 patents and 11 spin-outs to our name, UQ’s IMB has a strong record of economic development, impact and innovation through partnership.

We actively pursue equity and diversity in the workplace, and are proud participants in UQ’s efforts for accreditation in the Athena SWAN program.
