$10 million gift for cancer research in Auckland

The donation by Mr Liangren Li is for cancer research at the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences. The Li Family Fund will be set up as an endowment fund that will provide annual interest for investing in cancer research.
“This gift to the University is extraordinarily generous not only in its scale, but also in the multigenerational commitment that the Li family has made to support an ongoing programme of research. It will have a profound impact on our ability to develop new treatments for cancer,” says University of Auckland Vice-Chancellor Professor Stuart McCutcheon.
Dean of the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, Professor John Fraser, says “We are delighted that Mr Li has chosen the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences to receive such a generous donation, the single largest donation in our 50 year history.”
