Research

Metro South Health is committed to improving health outcomes and preventing disease through translational research. Our laboratory and clinical research has benefitted generations of families around the world.

We have strong links with a range of leading universities and institutes, as a key partner of Queensland’s first academic health science system, Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners.

Our major research precinct is the Princess Alexandra Hospital, which hosts Australia’s most advanced medical research facility, the Translational Research Institute (TRI) as well as a new Clinical Research Facility to conduct research on human subjects within the main hospital building with rapid access to emergency medical teams should this be needed.
