Royalties distribution

WEHI distributes royalty payments to people who contribute to the commercialisation of our research.

Translating basic research into effective new drugs requires great entrepreneurship as well as great science. Our royalty distribution process recognises this work and rewards those whose efforts have led to positive commercial outcomes.
