Support us

We are a registered charity and our pioneering research programmes are reliant on support from the community, the corporate sector, contestable grants and trusts.

The Malaghan Institute is New Zealand'’s leading independent medical research institute, with a proud history spanning 50 years. We are here to make a difference to people’'s lives, and our scientists believe that the key to making this difference lies in the immune system, the body’'s own natural defence against disease.

How I use the money you generously donate

"Hi, thank you for supporting my search for the specific immune cells which begin an allergic reaction. Research is a process of observation and elimination. $800 buys enough antibody for me to run two experiments which will confirm or eliminate a specific effector. It will bring us that much closer to new treatments or even a cure for allergic reactions." Dr Lisa Connor.
