Founding Partners

Thank you for your kind donation which will continue the work of the Institute and the vision of Burnet champion Alastair Lucas AO, through the Alastair Lucas Endowment Fund.

This fund will be used to support in perpetuity the Alastair Lucas Prize for Medical Research into diseases affecting poor and disadvantaged communities.

It was launched in August 2015 through initial generous financial contributions from the Founding Partners - Goldman Sachs Australia, Macquarie Group and GuoMinXInHe Group.

Alastair leaves an outstanding legacy for all those whose lives were touched by him, and the many lives saved through his generosity and passionate support of medical and public health research.

He was a great believer in science and its application to create a healthier, more equitable and better world.

He was a passionate supporter of our work and our mission to achieve better health for the poorest and most marginalised people in our own community and throughout the world.

Mr Robin Bishop, Burnet Board member and Head of Macquarie Capital in Australia and New Zealand said: ÔÇťAlastair will be remembered not only for his services to corporate Australia but also for the profound impact of his work championing advancements in medical research."

"Many lives have been saved through his generosity and passionate support of medical and public health research,"

Burnet Director and CEO, Professor Brendan Crabb AC
