Herston Health Precinct continues to evolve – delivering next generation advances in the detection, prevention and treatment of some of the world’s most challenging health issues.

We are developing a number of new health and research centres and institutes which offers investors with exciting opportunities to collaborate and innovate with us as we influence the future of global healthcare together.

As a world-leading cluster of biomedical, research, education and clinical activity, we have unlimited potential for continued growth in translating medical research into clinical practice, treatment and prevention for the global community.

Our priorities are aligned with community healthcare needs. We focus on diagnostics, treatment and improving health services; the prevention, detection and management of cancers; personalised medicine through genomics; biofabrication, robotics, and nuclear medicine; and improving geriatric and end of life care.

Strong links with Metro North’s The Prince Charles Hospital – one of Australia’s premier heart and lung hospitals – will allow further collaboration and innovation in the treatment of cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases.

If you are interested in partnering with us on these opportunities, please contact us for more information.

Genomic Institute

Planned completion 2020

The Genomic Institute will allow the delivery of personalised medicine in the fields of cancer care, renal medicine, maternity and neonatal care and pharmaceuticals. The Institute will also provide precision medicine for cancers and heart diseases as well as options for rarer genetic conditions.

Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS)

Opening in 2021

STARS will support the transformation of rehabilitation and surgical services across Queensland.  The 182-bed specialist public health facility will be one of the largest tertiary specialist rehabilitation centres of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It will lead to innovation in care, training and research through a strategic partnership between Metro North and The University of Queensland to deliver an innovative model of clinical care and embed clinical education to improve patient outcomes.

Herston Biobank

PROPOSED completion 2021

The Herston Biobank will bring together tissue and biological sample banks from across Brisbane to provide a centralised resource for health and medical research. The Biobank will also link to other banks creating a network of biological data for research, and will complement Herston Health Precinct’s biofabrication capability.

Queensland Proton Therapy and Research Centre

PROPOSED completion 2023

Global acceptance of particle therapy is growing in acknowledgement of the benefits it provides over traditional external radiation beam therapy. The Queensland Proton Therapy and Research Centre will be a world-leading proton therapy service for adult and paediatric cancer patients, with a model of patient and family centred, supportive and integrated care combined with clinical, education and training, research and community services. It will complement the Queensland Cancer Institute.

Queensland Cancer Institute

PROPOSED completion 2027

The Queensland Cancer Institute will build upon the clinical and research expertise of Herston Health Precinct partners, providing access to the most advanced systems, resources and technology to support cancer care services.

The Institute will also provide a venue for advanced teaching programs, research and industry.


New infrastructure will be delivered at Herston Health Precinct through a 5 hectare $1.1B mixed-use redevelopment of Herston Quarter by Metro North’s development partner, Australian Unity.

Herston Quarter will be redeveloped into a world class health and wellbeing precinct that will include a new public health facility (known as the Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service), a private hospital, aged care and retirement living, residential and student accommodation, child care, commercial and retail, car parking and public realm.

Redevelopment began in 2017 and will continue for the next ten years.
