Michelle - Support Care Officer
I enjoy working with a great bunch of humans that care about the people they are supporting, makes life very easy. Passionate people get results. It’s also pretty cool working with scientists and medical professionals that are writing history.

Yulia Lambrecht - Finance Manager
The patient connection in our research is so special. We are very fortunate and privileged to work with human hearts from patients undergoing lifesaving heart surgery.
I’m really lucky and grateful for the heart research grants I’ve received through The Common Good. We need to create new solutions and without this type of help, we cannot bring together all the different components we need.
By deepening our understanding of what happens in the brain once Alzheimer’s takes hold – it could open entirely new possibilities in the battle to find a cure.
Dementia robs a person of what I believe to be one of the most precious of human qualities and that is your memory. I am fortunate to be part of a great team conducting clinical trials, and undertaking cutting edge research into finding a cure for dementia.
The research we do is directly relevant to improving patient care. It’s home-grown, local innovation that has the potential to drive change across the global stage.
Research is anything but glamorous, but finding solutions to debilitating human diseases is really exciting and that is what keeps me going.
One of the things that drives me is the thrill of discovering how our bodies work. It's very exciting! It's also very addictive!
The Common Good helped save the life of someone we love and we are eternally grateful.
It feels good to support The Common Good!
