HUGH GREEN FOUNDATION

The Hugh Green Foundation is a charitable trust set up in 1998, with the aim of improving the health and wealth of local communities, inspired by Hugh’s own experiences of poverty during his childhood in Ireland.
The Hugh Green Foundation has been supporting the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research since 2010, with an initial investment in flow cytometry. The funding established the position of the Hugh Green Fellow, which enabled Kylie Price to spearhead the development of the Institute’s technology.
In 2019, on the back of years of further investment, the Hugh Green Foundation pledged an additional $7.1M to build a world-class biomedical research technology hub at the Malaghan Institute.
The Hugh Green Cytometry Centre underpins the Institute’s immunology research and supports a range of science organisations across biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry, neuroscience and marine biology.
