Donations of the day

The Blackmore Foundation has gifted $10m to Southern Cross University to establish a centre for naturopathic medicine. The university says this is the largest gift in its history and the largest commitment made by the Foundation, dwarfing the $1.3m it gave the University of Sydney in 2015 for a chair in integrative medicine. The Blackmore company also has existing or recent connections with Griffith U and RMIT.

The University of Sydney had a good Tuesday, announcing $4.5m from the Li Ka Shing Foundation for clinical trials of immunotherapy for patients with pancreatic and related cancers.
