Our research

We are New Zealand's leading independent medical research institute, focused on finding better treatments for diseases such as cancer, asthma and allergy.

The Malaghan Institute holds a special and distinctive place in the New Zealand health research sector.  

Our scientists believe the key to treating disease lies within our immune system, the body's own natural defence against infection and illness.

While our primary focus is cancer, asthma and allergy, by working closely with an extensive network of researchers, clinicians and community representatives, we are able to apply our expertise in immunology to where it is needed most.

Our goal is to deliver medical research discoveries and immune-based therapies that provide tangible health benefits to the community.
