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.

  • Antiviral and antibacterial surfaces using nanotechnology for Queensland hospitals. August 2020

    The emergence of COVID-19, for which there are currently no medications or vaccines, and the rise of antibiotic resistant superbugs, reveals a critical need to develop and implement technologies that prevent pathogen surface transmission. This Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship project led by Dr. Alka Jaggessar from QUT's School of Mechanical, Medical and Process Engineering will use nanotechnology to develop surfaces that deactivate viruses and bacteria in Queensland hospitals, reducing the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
