The announcement of the Snow Centre for Immune Health, which is featured on both the front and back pages, is a tremendous achievement for WEHI and wonderful recognition of our standing as a global leader in immune health research.
The new Centre, which will be led by WEHI in partnership with the Royal Melbourne Hospital, promises to transform immune health research, and should provide hope for the millions of people living with immunological disease in Australia and around the world.
The Centre has been made possible by an initial commitment of up to $100 million over 10 years from the Snow Medical Research Foundation, making it one of the largest and longest-standing philanthropic partnerships in Australian history. We are extremely grateful to the Snow Medical Research Foundation for their vision and generosity in supporting this critical research, and the next generation of science leaders.
We can’t wait to roll up our sleeves and get started. We look forward to bringing you more news about our cutting-edge immune health research in the months and years ahead.
