Finding cures for children's genetic diseases

Support Us

Trusts and Foundations

CMRI is backed by a range of charitable trusts and foundations who understand that our research is a long-term operation that requires passion, commitment and investment.

Without such support, we risk delaying the search for treatments and cures for childhood diseases.

Want to know what we do? Click here to read about our research programs.

Here are just a few examples of how trusts and foundations are currently supporting our research programs:

  • Ian Potter Foundation has provided several major equipment grants, including the seed of what was eventually to become the ACRF Centre for Kinomics and then ProCan
  • The R A Gale Foundation is a long-term supporter of CMRI's fundamental research into embryotic birth defects, cancer, neurobiology and gene therapy.
  • Ernest & Piroska Major Foundation (managed by Perpetual Trustees) fund Dr. Scott Cohen's research into the structure of telomerase, an enzyme that has been found to 'trigger' the spread of 85% of cancers.

We welcome enquiries from all trusts and foundations who share our vision of a future without childhood disease.
