Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence


The Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE) is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility that is the new home to the University of Queensland School of Pharmacy.

It is located on a 1.7ha site adjoining Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital, at the centre of Australia’s rapidly growing biotechnology heart. The $100m precinct, which was completed in 2009, creates a leading facility for pharmaceutical research, education and commercialisation.

PACE aims to create a new and unique health and medical precinct, with particular focus on pharmacy and pharmaceutical science. The precinct includes the Translational Research Institute and BioPharmaceuticals Australia, also known as the Smart Therapies Institute.

This facility will be the first institute of its kind in Australia, and one of only a few in the world, to have the ability to manage the discovery, clinical testing, and manufacture of new biopharmaceuticals and treatments all in the one place.
