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.”


For the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors, we ask you do not enter the QEI South Brisbane or QEI Clayfield facilities if you:

  • Have been in contact with a known case of COVID-19 
  • Have recently travelled overseas or interstate and have NOT undergone a two week quarantine 
  • Are awaiting COVID-19 test results
  • Have cold or fever symptoms (sore throat, coughing, sneezing etc)
  • Recently visited a COVID-19 hot spot (as identified on the Queensland Government website)

Please note that all visitors at this time will undergo contactless temperature checking. Our staff will also require the full names and contact details of all visitors to the building. 

Thank you for your cooperation at this time, please don't hesitate to contact us on 07 3239 5000 if you have any concerns.
