The Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) is a systems biology institute at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. IMB provides a multidisciplinary research environment with four divisions that conduct cutting edge research into the genetic, cellular and molecular basis of normal and abnormal mammalian development and variation. IMB offers world-class resources with core facilities and infrastructure for cell imaging (EM, light, fluorescence), analysis of animal models including mouse and zebrafish, high-throughput expression profiling, next-generation sequencing, proteomics, X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, computational modeling and chemical synthesis.

The Division of Molecular Cell Biology has an international reputation for research on cell structure, signaling and membrane trafficking. The Division has created a platform for innovative, collaborative and multidisciplinary research in cell biology.

The Division of Genomics and Computational Biology has extensive expertise in computational mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics and genomics.

The Division of Molecular Genetics and Development : Existing groups focus on aspects of urogenital, skin, brain, blood, limb and face development, early mesoderm specification, the molecular genetics of skin cancer, and metabolic disease. Within the division there is a strong emphasis on human disease and on the analysis of stem cells and organ regeneration.

The Division of Chemical and Structural Biology has an international reputation in chemistry and structural biology, with particular strengths in rational drug design and discovery, protein structure determination, and molecular studies at the chemistry-biology interface.
