Do you know someone affected by cancer, mental illness, infectious diseases or chronic disorders? If so, you will know how much suffering these dreadful diseases cause families every day.
Australia’s world-leading medical research institute, QIMR Berghofer, is finding the answers we need to prevent, detect, treat and cure these dreadful diseases.
The problem with medical research is not the science, it’s the funding. Put simply, there’s not enough of it. For every dollar we receive in government grants, we need to find another 65 cents to make the life-saving research happen.
