About us

The Australian health care system is one of the best in the world; but it faces numerous challenges. These include the growing burden of chronic disease, an ageing population and escalating pressure on health services, increased costs of medical research and innovation, and the safe use of health technologies and data.

About us

Medical research will play an important role in advancing our knowledge through the development of new treatments, therapies, concepts and ideas. Harnessing new discoveries and implementing them into the health system quickly and safely will enable health care providers to deliver the very best patient care.

As we look to the future, fast-tracking the valuable work of our researchers towards everyday clinical use will ensure a more effective, robust health care system.

Our purpose

Health Translation Queensland is a forward-thinking, dynamic organisation which links with partners to create strong and enduring alliances. We facilitate progress and accelerate growth. We collaborate in the powerful belief that our sum is greater than our parts.

We help to solve some of Queensland’s most pressing health challenges by supporting well-evidenced research to be more quickly and efficiently translated into clinical practice.

Our efforts focus on applying best-evidenced research to the health challenges impacting the people of Queensland. We serve a population of more than 5 million diverse Queenslanders, from Tugun to the Torres Strait.
