Queensland COVID-19 research

This page of Queensland’s research related to the COVID-19 pandemic is compiled from information provided by Queensland universities and research institutes.

While many of our researchers are working on potential vaccines, treatments and other medical interventions, other researchers are applying their expertise to other impacts of the pandemic upon our economy and other aspects of society. The data includes immediate research activity, recent relevant work, proposed research (subject to available funds) and other responses using the resources and expertise of our research organisations.

  • Drone management technology for improved aeromedical response to pandemics and natural disasters August 2020

    Drone delivery services are changing the way we respond to pandemics and disasters. In the COVID-19 pandemic, drones were used to deliver critical medicines and supplies to vulnerable people and isolated communities around the world. This Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship project led by Dr Aaron Mcfadyen from QUT’s School of Electrical Engineering & Robotics will develop drone management technology to scale up drone services and better prepare Queensland communities for future pandemics and natural disasters.
