Contract Research

QIMR Berghofer has a long and prestigious history spanning 75 years in research toward understanding and performing contract research in the key areas of cancer, infectious diseases, mental health and chronic disorders, as well as genomics and epidemiology.

We have developed and set up a variety of mouse models, and have contributed to hundreds of external programs. We have specialised facilities for genomics research, microarray and mass-array analysis, transgenic and gene knockout models, models of tumour growth and infectious diseases, confocal and laser dissection microscopy, FACS and cell sorting facilities. We also have access to a number of well-established and characterised tissue banks. Contract research carried out in QIMR has resulted in the discovery and development of cancer therapeutic agents and other commercial products.
