UQ is one of the top three research universities in the country.
UQ leads industry collaboration and research funding in Australia, with our researchers constantly pushing the boundaries to achieve world-acclaimed breakthroughs.
Students have the opportunity to study with researchers of international renown. UQ’s Professor Ian Frazer recently co-developed a world-first cervical cancer vaccine that will save the lives of millions of women around the world, while in 2006 nanotechnologist Professor Max Lu was the only Australian to make Phoenix Weekly’s list of the top 50 most infl uential Chinese in the world.
UQ has created more world-class research institutes than any other Australian university and has one of the highest participation levels of any academic institution in Australia in the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program.
“I’m proud to be both a UQ graduate and a UQ research leader. This university has the world-class infrastructure and vibrant research environment that leads to major international research breakthroughs. The researchers and senior staff at UQ have created one of the best research training environments in Australia, indeed in the world.”
