Supporters

We are delighted to discuss ways in which we can work with you to support our science. We are grateful to our philanthropic partners, and we are dedicated to treating all our friends and supporters with the highest care and respect.

Our commitment to you

We will acknowledge your gift quickly and will work with you to ensure your gift is used the way you would like.

If you have made a targeted donation and our research priorities change, we will make sure we talk to you, or your representative, to ensure your gift continues to work hard within our laboratories.

When you have given permission for us to use a donation in the research area of greatest need, we will ensure funds are used carefully and for the benefit of human health.

Our Donors

During 2019, our scientists have been steadfast in their pursuit of life changing improvements to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the brain and mind. Alongside government grants, contributions by generous benefactors provide essential support in achieving this aim. This generous support from donors, corporations, foundations and community groups enables our scientists to fund new ideas and innovations, driving our ability to chase discoveries as they emerge. We are grateful to all our supporters for joining us in our quest to improve lives, here in Australia and all over the world.
