A Queensland man wants to be released on bail so he can stop a "vindictive" landlord taking his life's work to the dump, court documents claim.

Jason Ronald Vaughan, 41, has been in custody since last October, charged with offences including using a carriage service to make a threat to cause serious harm, and is expected to have a bail application heard in the Brisbane Supreme Court next week.

In an affidavit filed before the hearing, the Townsville-born man says he's at risk of losing his "life's work", including inventions in "advanced biotechnology gene therapy of intractable human diseases" as well as "sophisticated business plans".

Valuable items also include dozens of textbooks, thousands of technical documents, artwork and poetry, the affidavit states.

The materials are at threat of being taken to the dump by "an unscrupulous and uncaring landlord with a vindictive motivation", he claims.

He hopes to live with his parents in north Queensland if his bail application, scheduled to be heard next Tuesday, is successful.

"The applicant seeks bail such that he can get his affairs in order," the document reads.

Vaughan also acknowledged he had a conviction for previously breaching bail.
