Wesley Medical Research Tissue Bank Donation

Wesley Donation presantationWesley Donation Members

President of the Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City Michael Sargent presented the CEO and Director of Research of Wesley Medical Research (WMR) Professor David Paterson with a cheque for $2040 from the Club at WMR’s quarterly Advocates event last night.

The Club’s donation will be used to purchase a hot air dryer for the WMR’s Tissue Bank. The dryer will speed the preparation of slide samples of tissue for researchers and increase the quality of the fix of the samples to the slides.

Club Members Kathryn Draper and Collin Myers joined the evening’s activities which included a presentation on an important new addition to the Tissue Bank, the Australian Autism Biobank, the first such facility in Australia which is helping the study of biological causes of autism.
