Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT)

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT) is a multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at The University of Queensland’s Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI), UQ Business School and partners in the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceutical industry. The purpose of this national centre is to provide research training for 20 early career and postgraduate students to fill critical skills gaps in the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceutical industry. Trainees will undertake industry-driven research to overcome bottlenecks in the development and application of novel diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics and to inform changes in regulatory policy that support industry growth. CIBIT is supported by industry partners Siemens Healthcare Pty Ltd, BGI International Pty Ltd, Inter-K Peptide Therapeutics Ltd, Clarity Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd, Minomic International Ltd, Theranostics (Australia) Pty Ltd, Brisbane Veterinary Specialist Clinic, Uniting Care Medical Imaging and Red Radiology Pty Ltd.

The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) is a strategic initiative of The University of Queensland, reflecting the growth in biotechnology, biomedical and materials research requiring advanced imaging capabilities. As a leading imaging research facility in Australia, and one of a handful in the world, CAI brings together the skills of a critical mass of researchers and ‘state-of-the-art’, world- or Australian-first research imaging instruments. NMR, EPR, MRI, PET, CT and optical imaging are now key platform research technologies for studying the structure and function of biomolecules and living organisms, from proteins to the human.

The UQ Business School is located on the St Lucia campus with a staff of approximately 172 academic staff; 150 equivalent tutors and 85 professional staff.  The School leases space in the Brisbane central business district in the Brisbane central business district where it offers core MBA courses and provides executive education and function facilities.
