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

Support our emergency response today and save lives.

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.

We need your help to urgently fund our COVID-19 research. There are currently no vaccines and no approved treatments to protect us.

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.

Supporting research today will change lives tomorrow

More scientists, doing more research, means outcomes will be faster. But we can’t do it without you.

Your help can accelerate our research and help save lives

A lifetime in medical research has filled me with confidence that eventually the horrors of cancer, stroke, dementia and heart disease can be overcome. It’s not a case of “if”, it is just a matter of “when”.

Please imagine a world in which we live long and healthy lives – free from the pain and fear of chronic diseases. The first step toward realising that vision is to gain a fundamental understanding of diseases – the causes and effects, the intricacies and complexities. This is the knowledge from which new diagnostics and treatments arise, and from which the tools to prevent are forged.
