Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a leading Australian university with a focus on world-class research and education. CMR works within the QUT framework, based at the Translational Research Institute.
The Translational Research Institute (TRI) is a unique, Australian-first initiative combining clinical and translational research to advance progress from laboratory discovery to application in the community.
TRI’s expert researchers work across multiple disciplines – from health, science, technology and built environment to engineering – to integrate their expertise in the areas of prevention, mind and body health, and recovery.
The concept of a major research institute on this site arose from the thinking of notable Queensland clinicians including Professor Bryan Emmerson and Dr John Golledge, and the vision was conceived and brought to fruition by the clinicians and scientists of the four institutions who were its founding partners; Queensland University of Technology, The University of Queensland, Mater Medical Research Institute and Queensland Health.
