The Mark Hughes Foundation is immensely proud to be affiliated with the following organisations in the common goal of Brain Cancer Research:

Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI)

HMRI logoOne of the Mark Hughes Foundation's main objectives was to create a strong emphasis on brain cancer research.

We are proud to say that we have achieved this objective by partnering with Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI), a translational research institute pioneering clinical and biomedical research striving to prevent, cure and treat a diverse range of serious illnesses.

Collaboration between HMRI and the Mark Hughes Foundation means donations to research will go straight towards brain cancer research at HMRI. Currently little research is focused specifically on brain cancer at HMRI however through your donations and support for the Mark Hughes Foundation, Brain Cancer research can be a major research focus.

We are excited to have created a dedicated funding stream for Brain Cancer research and hope that one day this will lead us to a cure.
