New Zealand’s leading independent biomedical research institute
We study immune and cancer cell biology with the goal of curing cancer using the body's own immune system.
Our asthma, eczema and food allergy research is addressing the basis of these global health issues to find effective treatments.
Be a catalyst for a healthier New Zealand. Help us create cures to improve the health, well-being and wealth of all New Zealanders.
A team led by Professor Mike Berridge is the first in the world to demonstrate the movement of mitochondrial DNA between cells in an animal tumour.
Our journey started in 1966 with a vision to improve the health of all New Zealanders. Since then we have become the nation's leading independent biomedical research institute, committed to finding cures for cancer, asthma, allergy and gut disorders.
