Join the Run for Research to help raise $50,000!
Our goal is to make a difference to the health of you and your family by understanding and harnessing the body’s own immune system. While we don’t have the same resources as many larger, well-established research institutions around the world, our scientists are producing results that compete internationally, such as our melanoma vaccine trial currently underway.
Support the Malaghan Institute at the 2015 Cigna Round the Bays to help our research into better treatments and cures for diseases such as asthma, allergies and cancer.
You will help raise funds to pay for essential equipment we regularly use, such as;
• Cell culture medium (500mL) : $40 - key component of any biological lab
• Dye kit (400 tests) : $420 - allows for certain cells to be excluded from flow cytometric analysis - super important!
• Protein labelling kit: $800 - allows for proteins to be labelled with a fluorescent dye so that they can be tracked.
Run for Research is for people of all ages and fitness levels - anyone can take part! There is even some healthy competition through our Malghan Institute Team Challenge if you enter a team.
Join now and make your run matter!
You can also Run for Research at events such as the Auckland Round the Bays, Taupo half marathon and Armstrong Motor Group Wellington Marathon.
Signing up is quick and instantly creates an individual fundraising page which you can personalise to help motivate people to support you.
