As the custodians of more than 4000 future medical and biomedical health clinicians and researchers, the Faculty of Medicine is driven, dedicated, and duty-bound to ensure our next generation of doctors, scientists, and health professionals is equipped with the tools to achieve their vision.
Reconfigured on 1 January 2017, the Faculty combines two research intensive schools, medical education, and five hospital-based institutes and centres. In doing so, we have achieved broad coverage of the ‘translational pipeline’ linking the pre-clinical and clinical sciences with population and global health.
Within our Faculty, we are teachers and we are researchers. We are students and we are staff. We are health professionals and together, we are united in our quest to make a global difference to health outcomes.

The Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) is a multidisciplinary health and biomedical research institute devoted to improving the health of individuals and communities through research innovation.
IHBI’s research focus includes; chronic disease and ageing, health determinants and health systems, and injury preventation and trauma management. IHBI partners with other universities, hospitals, medical research institutes, industry and government. The IHBI teams are multidisciplinary, so complete pictures are built up that include underlying biologics, genetic risks, social and environmental factors, human behaviour, clinical care, and wellness after treatment.

The Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) is an innovative organization that engages existing academic research resources and facilitates the development of new research, research capacity and effective knowledge translation.
With a network of academic researchers from across Canada, it serves as a focal point for 43 Canadian universities who have agreed to work together in addressing the health research requirements of the Canadian military, Veterans and their families. The institute serves all Canadian stakeholders interested in military and Veteran health research and acts as a conduit between the academic community, government organizations (eg. National Defence and Veterans Affairs Canada and Health Canada), industry and similar international organizations. The CIMVHR research program ensures sustainability through increased public awareness and public-private funding.

In 2007, the University of Queensland Diamantina Institute was established as the sixth research institute of The University of Queensland. The Institute was formed through the amalgamation of UQ's Centre for Immunology and Cancer Research (CICR) and the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology Research (CDER). UQDI has grown to include over 300 researchers, students and support staff.
In our short time, we have made major contributions to science. Amongst UQDI’s achievements are:
- Discovery, development and release of the world’s first cervical cancer vaccine.
- Clinical trials of the vaccine program in developing countries.
- Identification of genes responsible for one-third of the risk of developing ankylosing spondylitis.
- Development of a new test to identify patients with the potential to develop diabetes.
- Design of one the first needle-free vaccine technologies.
- Discovery of gene-silencing technology for cancer treatment.
- Identification of new genes involved in multiple sclerosis.
