Commercialising our research

22 Sep, 2017

The Queensland Eye Institute Foundation is well on the way to commercialising three of its research projects. This is where research is transformed into marketable products and where QEIF’s eye research comes to life in the treatment and care of our patients undergoing eye surgery.

Professor Traian Chirila said: “We have been working on these projects for two years. By establishing a connection between scientific practice and theory, and market solutions, we are enabling researchers and business to share knowledge and collaborate on projects, leading to innovative market solutions but most importantly delivering on QEIF’s purpose to save sight.”


Here at QEI & SBDH, the health and safety of our patients and staff is of the highest priority. That's why we are taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

We kindly ask all patients and visitors of the clinic to not enter the building if they are feeling unwell (fever, cough, sore throat or flu symptoms), have been overseas in the last two weeks or have been in contact with a known case of COVID-19.

Please contact us on 07 3239 5000 to reschedule your appointment if this applies to you. Our clinic staff are taking extra precautions through the use of face masks and extra santising measures. We would like to thank all patients and visitors for their cooperation and understanding at this time.
