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.
"CAR T-cell therapy saved my life. I know I got the fairytale outcome – but this is possible for others too. Let's raise $1 million to help fund the Malaghan Institute's CAR T-cell therapy programme, and get this breakthrough technology to other Kiwis that need it."
The CAR T-cell cancer therapy platform has got the backing from the New Zealand government in a recently announced funding deal.
From pipettes to high-powered microscopes, from petri dishes to million-dollar cell sorters – technology is the foundation that underpins all scientific programmes at the Malaghan Institute.
