Genomic medicine
is the future

Disease. At some point, we all have to face it.

Incredible innovations in medical research are enabling us to live longer than ever before; but as we live longer, disease can seem inevitable. Whether fighting for ourselves or our loved ones, we face this fight time and again.

Like Hosam, a neighbour with brain cancer.

Like Brian, a grandfather with Parkinson’s disease.

Like Kathren, a newlywed and new mother diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

To support our family, friends and ourselves, we turn to medical research. How then, do you decide who you should support? With over 5,000 disease-related charities in Australia, it can seem like an impossible choice.

By supporting Garvan’s genomics research, you can help them all.

At Garvan, we see a future where an individual’s DNA is used to diagnose, treat, predict and prevent disease.

The Garvan Institute brings together the brightest minds and cutting-edge technology to accelerate discovery. Our researchers have uncovered causes and developed treatments for cancer, autoimmunity and immune deficiency, osteoporosis, and diabetes. We are using the latest in genomic technology to change the future of medicine so we can all live longer, healthier lives.

Through our research programs and novel clinical trials, our clinician-scientists and community engagement, we are providing patients like Hosam answers to questions, opening new treatments avenues when all others had been exhausted, and providing hope. Hope that better diagnosis and treatments lie within reach.

Right now, 38 Australians are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every day. For most of them, the genetic cause of their disease is unknown. Through genomics research, Garvan is working towards a better understanding of Parkinson’s for Brian and others like him, but for now, there is no cure. Watch Brian’s video to hear his story.

 

 

Pancreatic cancer has one of the highest mortality rates of any cancer, a figure that has hardly moved in 40 years. One of our talented researchers, Professor Paul Timpson, is working hard to change that. Prof Timpson and his team are working to develop targeted therapies for pancreatic cancer, so that people like Kathren receive the right treatment for the best chance of recovery. Watch Kathren’s video to hear her story.

 

 

By supporting Garvan’s research, you are supporting transformative science into over 50 diseases today; from multiple sclerosis, brain cancer, and autoimmune disease to type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, kidney disease, and breast cancer.

Donate today to support the millions of Australians living with a disease who look to medical research for a brighter future.
