Launched on Monday, 14 October, UQ’s Not If, When – the Campaign to Create Change, aims to change lives within our community and around the world by encouraging support for research, disadvantaged students and teaching leadership.

UQ researcher and cervical cancer vaccine co-inventor Professor Ian Frazer said the launch came at a time when UQ researchers were close to solving some of society’s most pressing issues.

Professor Frazer is leading the campaign with his wife, UQ alumnus Caroline Frazer.

“I have seen first-hand how powerful giving can be, through the generosity of donors who greatly helped my research at UQ,” he said.

“The Not if, when campaign will connect our donors with causes they are passionate about, and help us to create change together,” Professor Frazer said.
