Donnelly Centre 2018 Annual Report
With this report, we would like to thank Terrence Donnelly, whose initial gift helped found the Centre in 2005, and whose ongoing support, along with that of other benefactors, is ensuring that the Centre remains at the leading edge of biomedical discovery.
This report highlights some of our researchers' accomplishments in increasing our understanding of the molecular underpinnings of health and disease and in translating these insights into new patient therapies. We would also like to take this opportunity to highlight our outstanding students and postdoctoral fellows who are training at the Centre to become leading researchers in their fields.
