R&D Lab

When Dr. Homer Stryker, an orthopaedic surgeon from Kalamazoo, Michigan, found that certain medical products were not meeting his patients’ needs, he invented new ones and pursued innovative ideas, guided by better patient outcomes. This desire to improve healthcare through innovation still drives us today.

R&D Lab | Stryker


Stryker’s R&D Lab in Brisbane, Australia was established in 2022 as part of the Advance Queensland Industry Attraction Fund. Stryker, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), The University of Queensland (UQ), Metro North Health (MNH) and Queensland Health entered a Master Research Agreement to leverage an open innovation ecosystem focused on the development of innovative medical technology products.   

Stryker’s R&D Lab is based in the world-renowned Herston Health Precinct, a place where 13,000+ clinical and non-clinical staff, scientists, researchers, and students in 30+ health facilities, medical research institutes, universities, and organisations, come together to deliver excellence in health innovation, education, research, training, and clinical care. Being located within this MedTech ecosystem allows the R&D Lab’s researchers and engineers to better collaborate with clinicians and understand their current and future needs, all at the site of care.  

With an expanded focus on digital health, robotics, enabling technologies, and advanced manufacturing research, the R&D Lab will accelerate the delivery of personalised health solutions and profoundly impact the future of healthcare.
