昆士蘭大學狄阿曼蒂娜 (Diamantina)學院 – 開創生物醫學領域新局面

昆士蘭大學狄阿曼蒂娜研究所(UQDI)是一家具有世界一流水準的生物醫學轉化研究中心(TRI),坐落於澳大利亞布里斯班市的亞歷山大公主醫院校區。 

借助毗鄰醫院的地理優勢,許多優秀的生物醫學研究者得以與臨床專家合作,發掘新研究熱點,將系統模型中的發現轉化為新型治療方法,並將其運用到臨床實踐當中。

我們的研究領域包括癌症,以及關節炎、糖尿病等免疫系統功能障礙性疾病,並在基因組醫學方面尤為所長。我所目前的研究亮點包括伊恩·弗雷澤(Ian Frazer)教授所研製的宮頸癌疫苗,蘭珍妮∙湯瑪斯(Ranjeny Thomas)教授研製的世界首例類風濕性關節炎疫苗。

UQDI的研究側重於探明疾病的分子與細胞學基礎,並將之轉化為對患者的治療依據。我所的疾病研究範圍涵蓋廣泛,其中包括: 

•自體免疫性疾病(關節炎、糖尿病、多發性硬化症、骨質疏鬆症、強直性脊柱炎)

•癌症(血癌、腦癌、宮頸癌、頭頸部腫瘤、黑色素瘤、前列腺癌、皮膚癌)

•感染(病毒感染和細菌感染)

•骨骼方面的疾病(骨質疏鬆、骨骼發育不良)

•神經系統疾病(運動神經元疾病、癲癇、精神分裂症)。

本研究所提倡學術自由,鼓勵創新,以搜尋治療疑難病症的新方法和新途徑。 UQDI是南半球最大的基因組學研究中心,具有世界領先的技術水準並擁有最先進的醫療儀器和設備。UQDI以其頂尖的科研基礎設施和優秀的研究人員及學生合作團隊吸引了來自世界各地的科研人員。2012年年底,我們搬遷至轉化醫學研究所(Translational Research Institute TRI)。作為我所的生物醫學轉化研究合作單位,TRI可容納700名研究慢性疾病和感染的科研人員。

UQDI擁有從事創新性研究的理想環境,非常適合學生的進一步深造。作為研究生,您將接受來自國際知名研究專家的悉心教導,他們將在實驗方法、項目管理、溝通技巧、深入理解研究領域以及未來職業規劃方面給你們提供指導。UQDI擁有眾多聲名卓著的研究人員和工作于一線臨床的住院醫生。就讀於UQDI將幫助你你將成為這個群體中的一員。接受了UQDI的課程及訓練,學生畢業時已培養出多元的就業能力,足以在多樣的研究環境中繼續發展。

UQDI為高水準的研究人員和學生提供眾多職位及多項獎助學金,我們熱切的期盼充滿激情的研究人員加盟,幫助我們一起在轉化醫學研究領域裡引領潮流。

本網站備有我所研究人員名單及其研究專案列表。關於這些研究人員及其工作,您如果有任何問題,請通過網上提供的詳細聯繫方式隨時與他們發電子郵件聯繫。他們將會很樂於回答您的任何問題。

UQDI致力於探索更好的診療方法,用於攻克嚴重影響人們生活的疾病。讓我們攜手同行!

The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute - Making a difference to biomedical research

The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute (UQDI) is a world-leading biomedical translational research facility based at the Translational Research Institute (TRI), on the Princess Alexandra Hospital campus in Brisbane, Australia.

The Institute’s advantageous location allows us to bring together leading biomedical researchers with clinician scientists, creating central point of expertise, driven to translate findings from model systems to the development of new therapies and clinical practice.

Our researchers work across a range of diseases including cancers, immunological disorders such as arthritis and diabetes, and we have particular strength in genomic medicine. Some of our research highlights to date include discoveries such as the cervical cancer vaccine by Professor Ian Frazer, and a world-first rheumatoid arthritis vaccine, developed by Professor Ranjeny Thomas.

Research at UQDI focuses on developing a better understanding of the molecular and cellular basis of disease, and to translate that understanding to practical outcomes for patients. The Institute covers a wide range of diseases including:

  • Autoimmunity (arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, ankylosing spondylitis)
  • Cancer (blood, brain, cervical, head and neck, melanoma, prostate, skin)
  • Infection (viral and bacterial)
  • Bone disorders (osteoporosis, skeletal dysplasias)
  • Neurological diseases (motor neurone disease, epilepsy, schizophrenia).

The Institute promotes academic freedom to inspire the creativity needed to find different and novel approaches to problems. UQDI has world-leading technologies and is home to the biggest genomics research centre in the southern hemisphere, as well as other state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.

Researchers from around the world are drawn to UQDI for its cutting-edge research infrastructure and strong community of researchers and students working together. In late 2012, we relocated to the Translational Research Institute (TRI), a collaborative biomedical translational facility that will house up to 700 researchers working on chronic disease and infection.

UQDI provides an innovative research environment ideally suited to research higher degree training. As a research student, you will be mentored by internationally renowned researchers who will guide you in the art of experimentation, project management, communication skills and comprehension of the research field, and future career management. By studying at UQDI, you will be part of a community of prestigious researchers and clinicians working on clinically-relevant problems faced daily by the patients they treat. Our graduates have a diverse skillset and benefit from a training program that prepares them for employment in a range of research environments.

We are eager to find passionate researchers to help us lead the way in translational research. The Institute offers a number of positions and scholarships to attract high-calibre researchers and students to UQDI.

Our list of researchers and their projects can be found online. Should you have any questions regarding a researcher or their work, please feel free to send them an email through the contact details provided. They will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

UQDI seeks to discover better treatments and therapies to target disease states and conditions that severely affect a human being’s ability to live life. Join us on our journey.
