A coalition of scientists, clinicians, health professionals, community organisations and other stakeholders, sharing knowledge to foster coordinated and collaborative brain injury research in Queensland. 


Stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and concussion (also referred to as mild TBI)  have similar pathophysilogy and rehabilitation strategies. By sharing knowledge and approaches — and by cultivating relationships with medical and allied health professionals and consumers — we give ourselves the best shot at improving patients' lives post-injury. We emphasise two research themes that cut across these clinical themes: Technology & Innovation and Economics and Health Services. 

Our five research portfolios:

Our goal is research that improves the provision of care across the trajectory of acquired brain injury, from diagnosis through acute care, treatment, rehabilitation and community integration. 


QBIC creates opportunities for knowledge exchange and encourages partnerships to develop acorss institutions and sectors, and between researchers and research end-users. Project co-design with consumers, clinicians and industry partners fosters research with impact and better patient outcomes.

Who we are

Brain injuries are complex, diverse, and require long-term rehabilitation and care. Researchers need to work directly with those who deliver care and understand patient needs: clinical and allied health professionals, not-for-profit services, commercial entities, and consumers themselves. Our diverse membership is an avenue to impactful collaborations.
