Nobel Prize-winning researcher Jan Fraser’s application to build a vaccine plant next to Princess Alexandra’s hospital is still short of millions of dollars.

The Institute for Translation Studies had hoped that the Commonwealth would contribute $ 20 million to the Institute for Translation Production.

The Brisbane Institute for Translation Studies wants to demonstrate Queensland’s “Smart State” credentials.

He had a business case and wanted to demonstrate the powers of Queensland’s “Smart State” amid a debate over Australia’s ability to produce its own vaccines.

Professor Fraser, the first CEO of TRI, spoke about his own experience as one of the creators of a cervical cancer vaccine that could only be tested and produced abroad.

“We want to be seen as world leaders,” Fraser said of the project.

TRI has already raised $ 20 million and persuaded the Queensland government to allocate another $ 20 million.

Although TRI hoped to receive $ 20 million from the Commonwealth Modern Manufacturing Initiative, its application under the translation flow was unsuccessful.

TRI continued the bid as part of a collaborative flow, but again was unsuccessful.
