QIMR shaves for the cure

QIMR Director Michael Good was among the group of volunteers at QIMR who today stepped up to the challenge of raising money for leukaemia research by participating in the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual “Shave for a Cure”. While not all were ready for the number one cut, an interesting mix of colours emerged as the group were relieved of their tresses and their usual workaday look.

The Leukaemia Foundation has contributed substantially to research at QIMR for many years. The Leukaemia Foundation Laboratory, headed by Professor Andrew Boyd, commenced in the early 1990’s with core funding from the Foundation and continues to receive funding at a high level. In addition, the Foundation provides funds to scientists in the Tumour Immunology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Laboratories.
