APCRC-Q joins TRI's Official Opening celebrations

The Governor-General, Her Excellency the Honourable Quentin Bryce AC CVO, officially opened Brisbane’s new biomedical research institute, Translational Research Institute (TRI), on Thursday 10 October 2013.

TRI is one of only a few facilities in the world to research, trial and manufacture breakthrough treatments all within the one location.  APCRC-Q researchers were among the first to move into the new facility in December last year.

The Institute is a joint venture between four leading research institutes -  the University of Queensland Diamantina Institute, the Queensland University of Technology's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, Mater Research and the Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Centres for Health Research. A biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility has been co-located at TRI to enable the discovery, manufacture and testing of therapies and vaccines to improve and benefit the health of people world-wide.

Multi-disciplinary teams of doctors and researchers will work together at TRI to develop and test potential new treatments.

The opening of TRI marks a significant milestone in the history of medical research in Australia.
