Supporting research will keep families together, longer!

Every four minutes an Australian hears the terrifying words “You have cancer”.

Cameron – like far too many Australians – has sat across from his doctor and been told he had cancer. Not just once, but twice. And he’s only 43!

Here at the Centenary Institute, our researchers are dedicated to preventing, treating and curing a range of cancers to protect you and your loved ones. The health and wellbeing of millions of people depends upon continual medical advances.

While we have already made many life-saving discoveries there is still so much we do not know. This challenge needs immense support, innovation and persistence.

Medical research is the only way out of the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 has presented us with a global health emergency. Centenary scientists including leaders in infectious and respiratory disease, are working to fast track as many research projects as they can to join the global effort to conquer this pandemic.

Our world-leading medical research team have already established their coronavirus lines of attack. We will leverage our longstanding expertise and focus on three key areas.

Invest in the future of your health today

According to statistics from the World Air Quality Project there were days when Australia recorded the worst air quality in the world during our summer of devastating bushfires.

Sydney alone was exposed to a record 81 days of hazardous or very poor air quality during 2019 alone – this is more than the combined total for the previous 10 years.

Is there any greater investment than in the future of human health?

Allergic diseases are among the fastest growing chronic health conditions in Australia.

Many diseases and conditions that affect human health have been cured or overcome as a result of medical research. Sometimes the result of a single ground-breaking finding, but in most cases the result of decades of dedicated chipping away at the unknown.
