Clinical sciences and experimental medicine are at the heart of finding new and improved approaches for the detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of clinically-significant diseases and disabilities and in translating these new approaches into healthcare practice. UQ research in clinical sciences and experimental medicine is at the forefront of healthcare innovation and translation and occurs through a distributed network of researchers based primarily in the School of Medicine, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, School of Biomedical Sciences, UQ Centre for Clinical Research, Queensland Children’s Medical Research Institute, UQ Diamantina Institute and Mater Research Institute - UQ (MRI-UQ). This network brings together researchers, clinicians, healthcare practitioners and service providers to develop cross-disciplinary knowledge platforms that inform clinical practice and policy and deliver innovative solutions to meet recognised healthcare needs.
