The landscape has changed dramatically at QIMR with completion of our new 15 floor research facility. Thanks to a generous gift from The Atlantic Philanthropies and funding from the Queensland and Australian Governments, the new building is the integrating hub between the Bancroft Centre and Clive Berghofer Cancer Research Centre, providing an inviting street profile and focal point for QIMR.

On 5 December 2012, Mr Chuck Feeney, Founder of The Atlantic Philanthropies, officially opened the new facility with distinguished guests including Mr Clive Berghofer, the Hon. Dr Chris Davis MP, Senator Jan McLucas, and US Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich.

The Governor-General, Quentin Bryce also gave an address via video, as she could not attend the ceremonies.


The QIMR Central building is the centrepiece of a $180 million project that is funded by the State and Federal Government and Mr Feeney’s generous gift.
