Queensland Health

Queensland Health is pursuing innovation by investing in smart technology, research and practices that can turn new ideas into better healthcare, not just for Queenslanders, but worldwide.

The Princess Alexandra Hospital is one of Australia’s leading health and teaching centres and a major medical research and knowledge precinct with biomedical capabilities and infrastructure. The precinct facilitates collaboration and connectivity between clinicians, industry and researchers. PAH hosts TRI and the Clinical Research Facility – for the discoveries made at TRI to undergo trials in a safe clinical environment – that enables collaboration and connectivity between clinicians and researchers.

The hospital provides acute medical, surgical, cancer, mental health and allied health services and is nationally recognised for expertise in trauma management. It is a major transplantation centre for livers, kidneys, bone and cartilage, and provides state-wide services for spinal cord and acquired brain injury, and the Queensland Tissue Bank which is the largest single tissue banking service in Australia.​

Mater Research

Mater Research, an independent medical research institute, is a recognised leader in medical research and a proud founding partner of TRI. Our bench to bedside philosophy means working across Mater’s hospitals and health services, and with our key partners UQ and TRI. We are committed to working closely with Mater Health and Mater Education and our growing network of partners and collaborators to turn scientific discovery into the best possible treatment, care, and outcomes for patients and our broader community.

Our five research programs are:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic and integrated care
  • Healthcare delivery and innovation
  • Mother and baby
  • Neurosciences.

We encourage our programs to be interlinked, and many of our ground breaking researchers undertake work that spans across individual programs.
