Malaghan Institute of Medical Research: securing medical discovery in New Zealand
A major challenge for New Zealand-made biomedical discoveries is making the pivotal leap from laboratory to the market, where they become available to the benefit of the wider community.
By opening up a new discovery area in chemical-immunology the Malaghan Institute and the Ferrier Institute are using their combined skills to build innovative new molecules for use in therapy. With the Malaghan’s HRC IRO-funded research into the workings of the human immune system, medical scientists at Malaghan are able to create a portfolio of promising therapies for a range of different diseases.
The most notable is Avalia Immunotherapies which has taken promising new chemical entities through preclinical studies and is working through the rigorous commercialisation phase here in
