The Malaghan Institute is New Zealand’s leading independent medical research institute and is focused on finding better treatments and cure
The Malaghan Institute is New Zealand’s leading medical research institute. Our work is focused on finding better treatments and cures for diseases affecting New Zealanders – including cancer, asthma and allergy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and infectious disease. We are a registered charity and our work is reliant on support from the community.
We have a proud history spanning over three decades. Our bench to beside philosophy is what drives our research through to clinical trials in patients. We have undertaken Phase I/II cancer vaccine trials for non-Hodgkins lymphoma and glioblastoma multiforme (an aggressive brain tumour) and are about to launch a Phase I melanoma vaccine trial.
