Exploring innovative treatments for chronic illness

Each year, more than one million people around the globe die from infectious diseases. MenziesHIQ researchers are investigating innovative strategies and therapies to help prevent, manage and eradicate some of these major diseases. This research program focuses on immune disorders such as coeliac disease, multiple sclerosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome as well as infectious diseases including viruses and bacteria causing cancer, urinary tract infections, gut and oral health problems.

Infectious Diseases and Immunology Report Update

Please see below the latest update and insights for the Infectious Diseases and Immunology Program, which was due to be presented at the MHIQ Director's Forum on Tuesday 31 March.

Griffith University Centre of Excellence in Spatial Biology

Griffith University has established a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in spatial biology in collaboration with Nanostring Technologies. The CoE will provide the scientific community in the Asia Pacific region with the latest in innovative immune profiling techniques. Spatial biology allows for the comprehensive assessment and characterisation of immune cells and molecules within their morphological context. Along with world-leading capability in clinical trial facilities and the Gold Coast Biobank, the CoE in spatial biology keeps the MHIQ at the forefront of biomedical research.
