University of Fudan – University of Queensland Biomedical Sciences Summer Research Scholarship Program

  

Purpose of Scheme

The purpose of this proposed scheme is to establish a program whereby the University of Queensland (UQ) will host high achieving biomedical science students from Fudan University for a six-week summer research program. The scheme is targeted at the top-ranked students that have shown a strong interest in pursuing a biomedical research career. Summer Scholars will be hosted for a six-week research project in research laboratories at UQ research institutes and will undertake research projects designed by active researchers with the aim of generating “real” research data contributing to ongoing research projects. In addition the Summer Scholars will also receive English tuition to enhance the experience and maximise the benefit of the program. Additional extra-curricular activities will also be arranged to enable the students to also benefit from the many unique experiences Queensland and Australia can offer visitors.

University of Queensland (UQ)

UQ is rated one of the world's leading universities and placed among the top 1% of all universities in the world. Evidence shows that UQ is a five-star quality university and is among the preferred places to work in academia:

§Awarded the maximum five-star rating for student demand, research grants and research intensivity - The Good Universities Guide 2012

§Top international academic institution outside the United States to work in Academia - The Scientist magazine’s Best Places to Work in Academia survey 2010

§Among the top five best places in the world for post-doctoral work in life sciences, outside the USA – Readers of The Scientist Magazine 2011.

The results of Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), the first nationwide assessment of research quality, placed UQ well above or above world standard in more broad fields of discovery than any other institution. As well, we have more researchers performing in fields rated above world standard than any other university. The outcomes evince the quality of UQ staff and research students.

As Australia’s third largest city, Queensland’s capital is a vibrant hub for visitors and locals alike. With a population of around 1.8 million, Brisbane is big enough to offer the advantages of a modern city, but small enough to retain the “country” charm and friendliness for which it is renowned. Its unique “Queenslander” style architecture, inner-city beach, rainforest gardens, and cosmopolitan shopping and entertainment centres all add up to Brisbane being a “must-see” destination. The subtropical climate is another key attraction.

University of Queensland Diamantina Institute (UQDI)

The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute (UQDI) is a world-leading biomedical translational research facility housing over 200 researchers. We bring together leading biomedical researchers with clinician scientists, creating a nexus of expertise driven to translate the findings from model systems to the development of novel therapies and clinical practice.

Our researchers focus on chronic disease states and conditions including cancers, arthritis, diabetes, bone and joint diseases and the body’s ability to respond to infection. Based at the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) campus, UQDI research programs are integrated with hospital clinicians to ensure that our research remains relevant to the people who suffer disease. Our unique approach has enabled us to develop global, world-changing discoveries such as the world’s first cervical cancer vaccine, pioneered by UQDI researcher and 2006 Australian of the Year, Professor Ian Frazer. We have recently relocated into the Translational Research Institute (TRI) housing up to 700 researchers focussing on biomedical translational research.

Research groups are supported by state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure, combining frontier technologies with animal models of disease in an effort to understand genetic and cellular processes and their subsequent malfunction in disease. UQDI researchers use these powerful approaches to understand the mechanisms that lead to a disease state and may be the basis for biomarker discovery, generation of new diagnostics, drug targets or improvements in current therapies and treatments.

Queensland Brain Institute (QBI)

The Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) houses more than 250 researchers who are working to discover the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the ability of the adult brain to generate new nerve cells and form functional connections.

Neuroscience is entering an era of accelerated discovery driven by the application of new molecular, genetic and imaging technologies, which will provide a deeper understanding of the regulation and function of the nervous system. Significant advances in determining the molecular regulation of nerve cell function and development will have a major impact on our understanding of more complex areas such as behaviour, cognition, ageing, neurological disease and mental illness.

Discoveries will also provide, for the first time, a real opportunity to develop new therapeutics to treat mental and neurological diseases, which account for a staggering 45 per cent of the disease burden in Australia. A major goal for QBI researchers is to promote excellence in neuroscience by fostering the exchange of ideas, establishing new collaborations and augmenting partnerships that already exist within the wider UQ neuroscience community.

Institute of Molecular Bioscience (IMB)

The IMB is a multidisciplinary research institute with a range of strategic programs in mammalian systems biology, supported by some of the finest facilities in the region.

The major focus of IMB's research is to understand the information contained in the genes, proteins and small molecules of animals and plants and thereby to improve human health through the development of new pharmaceuticals, cell therapies and diagnostics.

More specifically, IMB's major research themes are the understanding of the genetic programming of mammalian development and variation, the mapping of the structure, growth and dynamics of mammalian tissues and cells, and the development of new medicines and technologies, as well as biofuels and insecticides.

Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN)

The University of Queensland's Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) is an integrated multi-disciplinary research institute bringing together the skills of world-class researchers in the areas of bioengineering and nanotechnology. It is home to 19 research groups working at the interface of the biological, chemical and physical science to alleviate current problems in human health and environmental issues.

AIBN is comprised of a dynamic collection of internationally acknowledged chief investigators with proven track records in attracting competitive grant funding and fellowships. This has resulted in a highly-integrated environment with major research in the areas of:

Nanotechnology-based imaging and drug delivery for therapeutic products;

Regenerative medicine: biology, stem cells and novel scaffolds;

Novel protein expression utilising metabolomics and systems biotechnology; and

Nanotechnology for energy and environmental applications.

AIBN’s excellence is not limited to basic research, it is also deployed on industry problems through consulting, partnering and contract research.


Programme Details

Target Students

We are aiming at 3rd or 4th year undergraduate students studying subjects with a strong biomedical or bioengineering bias. We are very interested in students with statistical or programming skills and have many computationally-based projects available to bioinformatics or statistics students. Clinical Medicine students can also be considered but only those in the final years of their studies and who are keen to pursue a research career.

Dates of Program

The scheme will be run during the Chinese academic summer break in July-August. Although this is winter in Brisbane, our sub-tropical climate means this is the best time of year with warm days, cool evenings and next to no rain.

Selection criteria

1.Academic Grades

2.English competency (basic competency in English is necessary to allow lab communication but English courses will be provided to further enhance proficiency)

3.Previous research experience

4.Commitment to a research career

Proposed Programme Structure

6 week programme

§5 days each week of research immersion on selected project

§At completion of project students will present their research findings in an oral presentation

§Extracurricular activities such as visits to Queensland’s famous beaches and zoos will also be arranged.

Accommodation/living expenses

We are currently looking at accommodation options. We will source self-catering rooms/apartments as close to the University and as reasonably priced as possible.

Last year accommodation was at Uniresort (www.uniresort.com.au) and single rooms cost approximately $200/week. We are currently assessing this and alternatives that might be closer to UQ.

It is estimated that students will also need to take into account approximately $45 for travel expenses on public transport.

Students will require health and travel insurance which must be arranged from China before arrival.

A small bursary of $500 will also be provided to each student to help with living costs whilst at UQ

 

Potential benefits

This programme will give undergraduate students a first-hand taste of primary research in active research laboratories. Students will be exposed to active researchers at the forefront of their fields and have opportunities to see how cutting edge technologies are combined with a strong translational research focus to generate ground-breaking research findings. Further, students will have an opportunity to improve their English language skills in an immersion environment which greatly accelerates their language development. Such experiences will put these students in a prime position to pursue a career in research and make them very attractive for future employers or research higher degree providers.
