Our Genes, Our Shaare Zedek

Genetic discoveries at Shaare Zedek are having a direct effect on the prevention and treatment of disease in Australia.

It was Shaare Zedek’s Medical Genetics Unit that identified BRCA 1 and 2 mutations and their connection to an increased incidence of breast and ovarian cancer. Studies are now in place in Australia based on this research.

Now Shaare Zedek needs your help to upgrade Shaare Zedek’s genetic sequencer

This will enable Shaare Zedek’s doctors to analyse millions of molecules at once and prevent and treat disease.

Your tax-deductible donation will help Shaare Zedek make the genetic breakthroughs that are personalising medicine and transforming prevention and treatment of disease worldwide.


In appreciation of our true friend and generous benefactor, Mr Ron Tatarka Z"L
