The University of Queensland was founded in 1909. The student body for graduate and undergraduate is more than 37,000. The UQ is a premier research center for molecular biology and biomedical research. UQ is noted for its high-tech emphasis and research centers devoted to various high level research in cancer, cells and technology. Environmental research is another accomplishment of UQ.
A team of international scientists has unlocked the foraging secrets of manta rays at Lady Elliot Island, which could help conservation efforts for the vulnerable species.
Sea birds, dolphins, crabs and sharks are among the species that could suffer if commercial fishers abruptly stopped discarding their unwanted catches, research shows.
Trading maximum speed for manoeuvrability may be essential to surviving a run-in with a predator, a new study shows.
Scientists have called for a greater international collaborative effort to save the world's migratory birds, many of which are at risk of extinction due to loss of habitat along their flight paths.
Like humans, fish recoil from pain. But the fish pain reflex mechanism operates quite differently to the way it works in humans, University of Queensland research shows.
Advanced calcium imaging of zebrafish brains is helping University of Queensland researchers discover how sensory stimuli such as sights and sounds are integrated in the human brain.
The idea that a sperm whale can use its massive head as a battering ram to sink ships has been hotly debated at least since Moby Dick was published in 1851.
Fibres from the Australian native spinifex grass are being used to improve latex that could be used to make condoms as thin as a human hair without any loss in strength.
Researchers at The University of Queensland are a step closer to designing a seamlessly-integrated and more affordable image sensor that would recognise colours much like the human eye does.
Textbooks on methane-metabolising organisms might have to be rewritten after researchers in a University of Queensland-led international project today (23 October) announced the discovery of two new organisms.
