Laboratory to patient

UQDI focuses on bringing the discoveries of basic science to the patient. Over recent decades, the gap between the laboratory and medicine has widened as science has become increasingly complex. 

We therefore aim to translate the greatest opportunities for research discoveries into the cause, mechanism, prevention and treatment of major disease. Patient-based studies for testing new drugs and therapies for autoimmune diseases and cancers are undertaken at UQDI to the highest possible ethical standard.
