As we expand our cancer genetics research program, a generous donation of $100,000 from the Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) has helped to purchase cell-analysis equipment.
“We are delighted to have supported the purchase of this initial equipment,” says Reg Richardson, MIA chairman. “We are hopeful that further funding will be able to support melanoma research at the University in the future, with a broader affiliation spanning research, education and training as well.”
“With the MIA headquarters just down the road from Macquarie’s campus, Helen and I see very novel and fruitful collaborations here that we were unable to do elsewhere,” said Kefford. “It’s exciting to be so close to the MIA, with the world’s largest melanoma treatment centre and the largest melanoma biospecimens resource too.”
