Your generous support will make a huge impact.

It is through the help of our supporters that the Kirby Institute is able to conduct cutting-edge research that is improving health outcomes in Australia and around the world.

David Cooper Memorial Appeal

Professor David Cooper was an internationally renowned clinician and researcher, initiating ground-breaking, collaborative infectious disease research that has saved countless lives in Australia, and throughout the world.

He achieved more in his lifetime than most, but his work was nowhere near complete when he tragically passed in March 2018.

Your donation today will support the research endeavours closest to David’s heart: expanding access to effective prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.



Together, we can work towards developing new therapies, preventative vaccines and better solutions for those who are currently affected by infectious diseases and to those who are most at risk. Your donation will go towards helping our researchers make real advances and important medical breakthroughs.


All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia.

It doesn't matter how little or how much you donate. Help us lead the charge to discovery.
