Translating innovative health research into better health outcomes
The Menzies Health Institute Queensland (MHIQ) undertakes research across the lifecycle to identify key factors that influence health. From this, we develop and test strategies to improve health and wellbeing for individuals, families and communities.
Three overarching programs—Disability and Rehabilitation, Healthcare Practice and Survivorship, and Infectious Diseases and Immunology—encapsulate our research strengths and align with local and national health priorities.
These programs are augmented with a Clinical Trial Unit, the Gold Coast BioBank, the Centre for Applied Health Economics and experts in biostatistics. Underpinning the work of our Institute is a strong focus on innovation, research translation and meaningful clinical and community partnerships.
