Research in Queensland is supported by some of the best research facilities in the Southern Hemisphere.
Current research infrastructure
Queensland's research infrastructure has helped make the state a centre of excellence for science and technology. These facilities include precincts such as:
- Queensland Biosciences Precinct (St Lucia, Brisbane)
- Ecosciences Precinct (Dutton Park, Brisbane)
- Health and Food Sciences Precinct (Coopers Plains, Brisbane)
- Australian Tropical Sciences and Innovation Precinct (Townsville, North Queensland)

Future research infrastructure
Queensland is a leader in tropical research and the Queensland Government is investing $42 million to establish the Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine. This new research institute will enhance the state's ability to provide new solutions that improve the health of the world's population living in tropical climates.
