About


The Canterbury Medical Research Foundation was founded in 1960 and will celebrate its 60th Birthday and Diamond Jubilee in 2020.

Since its inception by a group of medical and business professionals, led by the late Professor Don Beaven, the Foundation has independently funded significant medical research projects, helping to save and improve the lives and health of many Cantabrians and New Zealanders.

This makes us the largest charitable investor in medical research across the South Island of New Zealand.
