Our Nominated Charities & Charitable Events
Rare Cancers Australia
MetaGene operates in the research and clinical cancer space, thus we are proud to be able to not only support the researchers dedicated to improving patient outcomes, but also the patients themselves. We support Rare Cancers Australia at their annual Halloween Masquerade Ball (unfortunately delayed to Friday 28 October 2022 this year) by purchasing a table for those most impacted by Rare Cancers, the patients and their carers.
