Dr Jack Richards and his team are working hard to develop a diagnostic test that will enable effective treatment and eradication of malaria.
The battle against some of the world’s most serious illnesses is being fought and won here at Burnet.
Through our commitment to science and public health, breakthroughs in malaria, HIV, hepatitis, cancer and other diseases have already been achieved, with more on the horizon. It’s not only the research that earns Burnet its privileged reputation, an innovative approach to public health continues to save lives across the globe.
Addressing these challenges – in the short-term through public health programs, and in the long-term through medical and behavioural research – continues to be a priority, but the simple fact remains – we cannot do it alone.
Generous and gifts in Wills from thousands of Australians have made a significant contribution to the quality of life for so many, in Australia and in the areas in which Burnet operates. Your support will make a difference too!
