Wellington Mayor visits the Malaghan Institute

22 August 2011

Following on from her recent visit to the Malaghan Institute to open the NZASI Conference, Celia Wade-Brown, Mayor of Wellington, returned for a personal visit of the facility on Tuesday the 9th of August.

Accompanied by Graham Le Gros, Research Director and Viv Bernard, National Development Director, Mayor Wade-Brown was escorted around the lab facilities. She stopped to discuss with staff the many different aspects of research undertaken within the institute and was able to draw upon her own scientific knowledge in an active discussion about the Flow Cytometry lab.

As a committed Wellington organisation the Malaghan Institute was grateful to be able to host Mayor Wade-Brown and showcase some of the ground breaking work we do, as well as introduce our brilliant staff. We welcome this recent and increased contact with Mayor Wade-Brown and her enthusiastic support for the scientific community in Wellington.
