BIG CHALLENGES NEED BIG SCIENCE


The Malaghan Institute of Medical Research is New Zealand’s leading independent medical research institute, with a proud history spanning over three decades of pioneering research focused on finder better treatments for cancer, asthma and allergies.

The Malaghan Institute embodies excellence in technology – such as world– leading techniques like laser analysis of cells using Flow Cytometry and the technology currently being trialled in conjunction with Oxford Nanopore which allows DNA sequencing to be run via a USB port from a laptop.

Institute Director Graham Le Gros says the combination of knowledge, experience and technology is what creates Malaghan's platform for success. "Last year we discovered a unique type of immune cell in the skin which we're sure will help us treat allergic skin disease, we started Phase 1 clinical trial of a melanoma cancer vaccine and our Cancer Immunotherapy was named in Science magazine as the worldwide Scientific Breakthrough of 2013."

Over the past 5 years, the Malaghan Institute has invested $36.3million in health research in Wellington, keeping over 70 medical science experts here in the capital, and creating a site of world–class medical technology.
