We are delivering – Snapshot four

We are delivering: Research quality and quantity

  • Our output of around 800 scientific papers published in 2016 was the highest ever and has more than doubled in the past 10 years (to more than two papers per day).
  • There was a 10-fold increase in citations of our papers by researchers worldwide in the past 10 years (indicating the quality of our papers as judged by other researchers).
  • Average h-Index (an integrated measure of quality and quantity of a scientist’s output) of our Faculty is 42 (considered to be outstanding).
  • 28 of our researchers have had a publication that has been cited more than 1,000 times.

We are delivering: Research that is translated

  • There are 17 ongoing clinical trials based on our work and led by QIMR Berghofer researchers (in all four programs Cancer, Infectious Diseases, Mental health and Chronic Disorders).
  • Our researchers were involved in 35 third-party-sponsored ongoing clinical trials.
  • 47% of our research projects have moved forward from the discovery phase closer to translation.
  • We wholly own the clinical trials company, Q-Pharm.

We are delivering: Economic value

We are delivering: Star researchers

We are delivering: Directly to the community

  • We hosted over 1,000 high school students in our Education laboratory.
  • We presented to more than 1,000 students throughout Queensland as part of our regional outreach program.
  • We provided tours of the Institute and talks to almost 4,000 people.
  • We were active participants in the World Science Festival and the Guinness World Records largest ever practical science lesson.

Thanks to support from our donors and Queensland Health. As you can see, WE ARE DELIVERING.
