Head of Fundraising

The Institute’s fundraising team is responsible for connecting our wonderful supporters with our inspiring researchers.

All the researchers and staff at the Institute are very aware of the vital contribution donors make to discoveries; after all the Institute exists because of a philanthropic gift made more than 100 years ago. 

The fundraising team makes sure our donors have the chance to support research that is important and relevant to them, and that all our donors are kept up-to-date on developments. 

We encourage our supporters be an active part of the Institute’s success. Our supporters are welcome to meet our researchers, visit the Institute and ask questions about our progress. 

Each year, our donors contribute more than $16 million towards our research. It is these generous gifts, grants and bequests that enable the Institute to pursue ambitious ideas, support promising young researchers and invest in vital new technology. 

At the Institute, we believe discoveries need donors and scientists, and that it is a shared journey of discovery. The fundraising team is responsible for ensuring your experience as a donor to the Institute is inspiring and engaging.
