Johnson & Johnson Innovation Partnering Office @ QUT

Launched in 2016, the Johnson & Johnson Innovation Partnering Office @ QUT (JJIPO@QUT) is a public-private partnership between Johnson & Johnson Innovation, QUT and the Queensland Government.

JJIPO@QUT works with emerging pharmaceutical, medical device and consumer healthcare companies and academic researchers across Queensland, providing commercialisation training, mentoring and networking support at no cost, to accelerate translational life science research along the pathway to commercialisation.

Researchers and entrepreneurs now have access to the network and capabilities of Johnson & Johnson Innovation at QUT's Kelvin Grove campus. Based at QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI), the office serves as a strong platform to identify and nurture life science research collaborations. It provides access to valuable knowledge exchange, scouting programs, and scientific, regulatory and commercialisation expertise from the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies for academics, entrepreneurs and other early-stage innovators.
