The University of Queensland's Biological Resources (UQBR) is a Central Research Platform (CRP) established to ensure there is effective and dedicated support for research involving animal models.


Established in 2006 to centralise operations, UQBR now includes a number of facilities across the St Lucia, Herston and Gatton campuses, RBWH and PAH Hospitals and Hidden Vale site.


The core role of UQBR is the provision of best practice husbandry care, combined with research support such as hands-on training and project assistance.


UQBR has the ability to host a range of species, such as mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, pig, sheep, chickens and native species such as fat tailed dunnarts that can be housed within a collective holding capacity of over 45,000 cages/pens.
