The $100m precinct was completed in December 2009. The PACE concept was jointly developed by the university and the whole profession in 2000, and creates a leading facility for pharmaceutical research, education and commercialisation.
PACE aims to create a new and unique health and medical precinct, with particular focus on pharmacy and pharmaceutical science.
The project has the support of the Queensland State Government, which has donated land for the project on a site adjoining the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
