Malaysian Fundraiser Contributes $11k Towards Research into use of Repurposed Drugs

Malaysian High Commissioner Nur Izzah Wong Mee Choo, Margie Beattie and Carol Law

We are grateful to the Malaysian High Commission for hosting a fundraising lunch raising $11,000 in support of our research into the use of repurposed drugs.

About 80 people attended the function, hosted by the Malaysian High Commissioner Nur Izzah Wong Mee Choo. Dr Swee Tan spoke about his humble beginnings in rural Malaysia, and subsequent study and work in reconstructive plastic surgery. He went on to talk about how this work led him to establish Gillies McIndoe and focus on finding less invasive treatment approaches, such as using repurposed drugs, for life-threatening and disfiguring conditions, like cancer.

It was a successful afternoon, and we thank all those who donated raffle prizes and supported the auction.
