You call it research:
we call it hope

We’re at a critical point in advancing biomedical science, and we need your help turning this revolutionary research into life-saving outcomes for patients.

At Wesley Research Institute (WRI), we're pioneers in breaking barriers within health and medical research. 

With over 30 years of commitment to faster diagnosis, better treatment options, and cures, we have recently embarked on a groundbreaking initiative: the Queensland Spatial Biology Centre (QSBC). In collaboration with The University of Queensland, QSBC will accelerate our research, translating to improved patient health outcomes.

With state-of-the-art research tools at our disposal, ongoing funding is key to translating this work into valuable treatments sooner. Our researchers have the expertise and skills to break the barriers – but they need good people like you to support their work.   

Join us in reshaping the future of healthcare by donating as generously as you can today.

Meet Michel Itel, a devoted father-of-two who was blindsided by a lung cancer diagnosis six years ago. Despite living a healthy lifestyle and never smoking, Michel found himself facing a daunting battle against this relentless disease.

Thanks to groundbreaking genomics testing, Michel's journey took a turn towards hope. His DNA revealed a mutation known as an exon 19 deletion, leading him to participate in a clinical trial of a next-generation drug therapy. But the road was still uncertain, filled with shock, anger, and disbelief.

Here is where the new Queensland Spatial Biology Centre and its pioneering scientists stepped in. Leveraging spatial technology they mapped Michel's tumours, providing his doctors with invaluable insights for personalised treatment.

"This technology means you will know very quickly not only what you have but which treatments will work," Michel shares. "It's like having the Google Maps of cancer, giving us better information to make decisions," says Michel.
