This Christmas, consider giving the gift of of a donation to medical research in honour of a loved one. Not only will you be sharing an act of goodwill at Christmas, but you will also be helping to support medical research long beyond this Christmas and into the future.
Your loved one will receive the gift of knowing they are making a direct difference to the future health of Australians. Your gift could help our scientists find better treatments for major diseases like cancer, osteoporosis, and diabetes that.
Give a gift that will make a lasting impact this Christmas.

Garvan scientists have uncovered a promising new approach to treating pancreatic cancer, by targeting the tissue around the tumour to make it
'softer' and more responsive to chemotherapy.
Type 2 diabetes
Our team discovered that abdominal fat is a key risk factor for insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes.
Garvan scientists discovered a group of cells believed to trigger autoimmune disease, as well as the molecular 'trigger guard' that normally holds them in check.
Osteoporosis & Bone Biology
Garvan teams made the discovery that the brain hormone, Neuropeptide Y (NPY) regulates bone growth and density. The joint project (with our Neuroscience Division) could lead to the development of new treatments for osteoporosis.
The team has developed methods to culture adult nerve stem cells capable of generating new brain cells, giving hope that some neurodegenerative diseases could be reversed.
Our teams are working around the clock to push the boundaries of medical research.
