Public Affairs and Development

The unique approach of integrating medical research with public health action is what sets Burnet apart from its peers.

Led by former scientist, Paul Rathbone, the Public Affairs and Development team is committed to raising the profile and public understanding of the significant, ground-breaking work undertaken by Burnet’s staff. We actively encourage the public to become donors and support the groundbreaking work across the Institute.
