Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Donald Cant Watts Corke proudly supports WEHI, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Affiliated with The Royal Melbourne Hospital, WEHI links research outcomes with clinical practice to accelerate discoveries for health and disease.


We first partnered with WEHI in 1981 to assist in their initial development, and in subsequent years were involved in their major redevelopment of their existing campus which was completed in 2012.

Currently, we are assisting in the development of their new creche facility.

Furthermore, our previous financial support was $30,000 a year for three years; however from 2016, we have increased our endowment with a further $100,000 provided to them over the course of the next three years. This will no doubt ensure their amazing work continues; and benefits to community health multiply.
