UQ and Emory University in the United States of America share a common desire to translate our research efforts into positive global transformation.
Based at UQ’s bioscience precinct in St Lucia, the University of Queensland Emory Drug Discovery Initiative (QEDDI) is a major initiative that aims to discover and develop new drugs to combat health issues including cancer, diabetes, inflammatory disorders and infectious diseases.
QEDDI will enhance existing partnerships with major pharmaceutical companies such as Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca and Pfizer, and enable more strategic partnerships in the future.
