Our history

A quick look back at some major milestones since our establishment in 2014.

2023: Health Translation Queensland became the lead organisation of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA).

Professor John Prins was appointed as Executive Director of Health Translation Queensland.

2022: Health Translation Queensland welcomed two new partners to the collaborative network, including Griffith University in October 2022 and Gold Coast Health in December 2022.

2021: Health Translation Queensland launched in November 2021 as the next evolution of the collaborative partnership formerly known as Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners (BDHP). Health Translation Queensland reflects the statewide remit of many of the challenges and opportunities the organisation is tasked to address, and confirms its role to support the translation of research into Queensland healthcare.

2020: The Australian eHealth Research Centre, a collaboration between Queensland Health and CSIRO joined the BDHP partnership.

2018: BDHP accredited by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) as an Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre.

2016: The BDHP partnership expanded to include Queensland Health, the Brisbane South Primary Health Network and most recently West Moreton Health.

2014: Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners was established through an early collaborative agreement between Mayne Health Science Alliance, Diamantina Health Partners and Children’s Health Queensland, effectively bringing together Metro North HHS, QIMR Berghofer, UQ, QUT, Metro South Health, TRI, Mater Health and Children’s Health Queensland.
