Your support improves lives

Medical research is critical for improving the health and quality of life of all Australians.

With your support we can continue to make medical breakthroughs that benefit millions of people in Australia and around the world.

What we do

Institute researchers are working to better prevent, diagnose and treat diseases including blood, breast, ovarian and bowel cancers, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, coeliac disease and malaria.

We are doing this because:

  • One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85
  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime
  • More than 120,000 Australians have type 1 diabetes
  • Coeliac disease affects approximately 1 in 100 Australians
  • More than 400,000 Australians have rheumatoid arthritis

Improving the health of all Australians

More than 50 clinical trials based on discoveries made at the institute are underway, including a new class of anti-cancer agents and potential vaccines.

Your support will allow us to continue to make discoveries that improve people’s health:
