To welcome in the start of the warmer Spring weather, the Auckland Friends Committee arranged a champagne and canapes night this month. Around 100 people turned out to enjoy the drinks and canapes, from one of the best vantage points at Britomart. Thanks to Westpac for generously providing the stunning venue, their lovely level 9 function room and deck overlooking Britomart Square.
Associate Professor Ian Herman, educated the receptive crowd about the immune system (we all now know what a T-cell is!) and the latest research at the Institute using the immune system to fight cancer. We're reminded how lucky we are to have such high calibre scientists in NZ working for the Institute.
Events like these are great to help us build awareness about the great work the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research is doing.
Thanks again to Westpac for all their support, and likewise Kelly Lawson the talented graphic designer from Painted Pixel, who generously whipped up the invites in record time.
Next we're all looking forward to the November Golf Day!
