Living every day with COPD

Over 1.4 million Australians are living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, with as many as one in 20 people over the age of 55 affected by the condition. Although understanding of COPD has improved significantly in recent years, we are constantly seeking new avenues to explore in our relentless pursuit for better breathing.

Open source: the future of medical discovery

There is growing recognition that no single research body or group has the know-how or resources to tackle the most widespread and persistent diseases. Fortunately, a growing number of scientists are engaged in open source innovation that removes barriers and creates a more transparent environment for medical discovery.

How we do business

Crowd sourcing new treatments for malaria

New medicines are urgently needed for diseases of the developing world and those medicines need to be affordable.

Every breathe you take: Alannah's story

Most of us take breathing for granted. It’s an automatic activity that we don’t need to think about. But imagine if every breath you took was a struggle; imagine waking up in the night wheezing and short of breath.
