Ausenco Foundation supports leading medical research clinical trials centre

The Ausenco Foundation has today announced a donation of $7,500 to the Wesley Research Institute’s Clinical Trials Centre for the upgrade of Centre’s Clinical Management Systems.

The Wesley Research Institute is a leading centre for practical, hands-on clinical research that focuses on achieving immediate improvements and is located very close to Ausenco’s head office in Brisbane.

Ausenco Foundation Chairman Zimi Meka said the organisation was delighted to support the Wesley Research Centre with this donation.

“Through the Ausenco Foundation and the generosity of our people, we want to help communities develop.

“We view Wesley Research Institute as a key contributor to medical research that could one day help our people and our families all around the world,” Zimi/Mr Meka said.

“As an organisation that also relies on the expertise of our people and the assurance of an effective management system, we understand and support Wesley Research Institute’s investment in the Clinical Trials Centre Management System upgrade to improve their important work.

“We look forward to developing the relationship between WRI and our people in the years to come.”

The Chairman of the Wesley Research Institute, Mr Martin Albrecht AC, thanked Ausenco Foundation for the support.

“Improving the Clinical Trials management system will increase the efficiency and coordination of the trials, and allow the researchers to focus on what they do best,” Mr Albrecht said.

“This donation will certainly help our dedicated team continue to test the safety and effectiveness of drugs, devices, treatments and preventative measures to improve the quality of life for patients.”

The donation to Wesley Research Institute is just one of a number of initiatives being funded by the Ausenco Foundation in 2012. With a focus on community development and children, the Foundation is supporting education programs for disadvantaged children in Australia, the health and safety of community child care facilities in Brazil and helping to transport young people to medical appointments in the USA.
