Feeding the World

Researchers at UQIDAR will work on breakthrough research in everything from diabetes to dementia to pain relief and cancer drugs. Projects that are researched in the UQIDAR will develop solutions for critical problems in medical and allied health research. UQ and IITD both have a truly world-class record for excellence in the fields of biotechnology, biosciences, bioinformatics, health and health & behavioural sciences. Multidisciplinary research is routinely carried out in most biology related areas. The UQIDAR will bring together top researchers from UQ and IITD, along with our associate partners, to deliver impact.
