Professor Chris Semsarian AM, Head of the Centenary Institute’s Agnes Ginges Centre for Molecular Cardiology, has featured in an article in Research Australia’s Inspire Magazine outlining the importance of philanthropy to medical research.
The article highlights how the philanthropic support of Mrs Agnes Ginges and her husband, the late Mr Berel Ginges (facilitated by eminent cardiologist Professor David Richmond), was critical to the Centre’s formation.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Centre has established itself as a world-leading cardiovascular program, directly saving lives, improving patient outcomes and changing the future for many individuals, families and communities.
“Philanthropy is one of the most powerful catalysts in improving health outcomes for our communities,” said Professor Semsarian.
“Support from donors has played a pivotal role in the development of a world-leading cardiovascular research program located within the Centenary Institute.”
