The Hugh Green Foundation has pledged $7.1 million to build a biomedical research technology hub at the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research.
The Hugh Green Cytometry Centre will be a hub for the Malaghan Institute’s immunology research across cancer, asthma and allergy, gut health, brain health and infectious diseases. The centre will also support a range science organisations including in biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry, neuroscience and marine biology.
Director of the Malaghan Institute Professor Graham Le Gros says the Hugh Green Foundation’s support is game changing for both the Institute and New Zealand and will have a lasting impact on the health research sector.
‘Philanthropy has a major role to play in what we do. This investment will provide unprecedented scientific capabilities to fuel our research and discovery, enabling us to achieve significantly more for New Zealand.’
Hugh Green Foundation has been working with the Malaghan Institute for more than eight years, and this $7.1 million investment will be spread over the next five years.
Hugh Green Foundation Chief Executive Adrienne Thurston says the Foundation said ‘This investment reflects the deep and trusted relationship we have built with the Malaghan Institute over the last decade and the impact that has already been demonstrated.’
