Support our work

There are many ways you can support the Doherty Institute.  One important way is through philanthropic investment, which will help us to:

  • Develop new ways to detect, treat and prevent new and re-emerging infectious diseases including Zika, Ebola, dengue and new strains of influenza
  • Combat the disproportionately high rate of preventable infectious disease transmission amongst Australia’s Indigenous population
  • Develop new ways to prevent, treat and cure chronic infections such as HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis
  • Track and prepare for the increasing threat of antibiotic resistant superbugs
  • Advance the field of immunotherapy to harness the immune system to fight disease.
