Gifts to the Foundation promote excellence, innovation and participation. Support from our alumni and friends is critically important to ensure that the University continues to fulfil its mission as Tasmania's university and is able to make a significant contribution to the cultural, economic and social development of the state.

Arthur Cobbold Memorial Lecture Appeal
No early alumnus of the UTAS School of Medicine needs an introduction to Arthur Cobbold. From 1964, when he arrived as Foundation Professor of Physiology, to his retirement 21 years later – with 13 of those years as Dean of Medicine – he very much shaped the School and the lives of many of those in it. It is a fitting memorial to the late Professor Cobbold that an annual lecture on contemporary medical issues will again influence medical thinking in Tasmania and that the support to endow this lecture in perpetuity will come from those who were themselves most closely influenced by his work and mentorship.
