Help Cure The Future

Recent years have shown some great results for Cell & Gene research – the FDA approved the 1st Cell & Gene treatments in the US and our Haemophilia trials in Australia were a ground-breaking success – so the future looks positive. 

But there’s more research to be done to perfect a cure for the thousands of diseases we can inherit from our family. Help us build on the progress so far and let’s work towards a healthier future – for all our families.

Tree of Hope

Our new ‘Tree of Hope’ represents the hope we have in the future of cell and gene therapy to provide a cure for thousands of inherited diseases – and a way for our donors to show their support. Help Cure The Future by adding new leaves to the tree and help make it grow.
Each new leaf reveals a photo and a dedication to a loved one, a celebration of life or a special event.

About Cure The Future

“The idea behind Cell & Gene Therapy is simple –

Why not replace an inherited ‘disease-causing’ gene, with a normal version of the gene…

and let the body heal itself?”
