2022 GIH External Project Call

Genome Innovation Hub - 2022 External Projects

The Genome Innovation Hub (GIH) is a University of Queensland initiative that aims to develop innovative approaches to advance technologies in structural and functional analysis of genomes. The GIH operates as a collaborative research centre, focussed on designing and implementing cutting-edge methodologies in the areas of health, agriculture and the environment.

GIH is currently seeking to engage in collaborative projects in partnership with research groups across UQ. Projects are expected to launch February 2022. 

Successful project innovations will be made broadly available for uptake, either through UQ central research services or research groups willing to collaborate and/or train research staff in these newly developed approaches. 

About the opportunity 

GIH is currently calling for applications from UQ research groups who are interested in collaborating on projects to develop cutting-edge technology breakthroughs. For successful applications, collaborating research groups will work closely with GIH in the design and development of projects, with both groups actively contributing to projects (including co-investment in funding and personnel expertise). To find out more about previous recipients of GIH Collaborative Projects and their research, see our collaborative projects page here.

Project application and assessment
