Government Partnerships

Government funding and partnerships with government research organisations are critical to AIBN’s success. 

The Queensland State Government contributed $20 million toward the construction of AIBN’s research facility. The $75 million building, which also received financial support from Atlantic Philanthropies and The University of Queensland, is now home to state-of-the-art scientific facilities and research centres, a number of which have received additional support from the State Government. This is evidence of the state’s dedication to not only building world-class research infrastructure but also ensuring ongoing success. Most recently, UQ and the Queensland State Government funded the development of AIBN’s new $7 million UQ Centre in Stem Cell Ageing and Regenerative Engineering (UQ-StemCARE).

Research support from the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Australian Research Council, and the Queensland State Government continues to be indispensable to the initiation and progression of AIBN’s research programs. Without this state and federal support, our discoveries and technological advances would not be possible. 

Our researchers also regularly engage with government research organisations, joining forces to share expertise, infrastructure and resources. Such interactions include collaborations and research appointments with organisations such as Queensland Health, CSIRO, and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO).  These partnerships are enabling our scientists to meet new challenges across multiple areas of global interest. They are making advances in synthetic biology, improving Zika virus diagnosis, and developing next-generation biomaterials that can help the human body repair and regenerate, to name just a few.
