LSH Auto Australia’s dealership in Sydney helps drive life-saving transplant research

Vital transport for organs bound for essential, life-saving, transplant research is proudly supported by LSH Auto Australia’s dealership - Mercedes-Benz Sydney.

The critical service, facilitated by the provision of Mercedes-Benz Valente vans, is part of the leading work of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital’s Transplant Institute (RPATI).

Founded in 2006, the mission of the RPATI is to promote and support transplant research projects undertaken by scientists and transplant clinicians working at RPA, the University of Sydney and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The work is focused on converting innovative ideas into high quality research and on improving community education by raising awareness and promoting organ donation and transplantation.

Amongst the world-leading scientific and clinical research is cutting-edge work on addressing key challenges facing transplantation medicine, such as the need for immunosuppressant therapy and the prolonging of post-donation organ viability. The aim is to advance the knowledge of transplant healthcare professionals and create treatments that will contribute to prolonged, improved health for all transplant patients.

The practical support provided by Mercedes-Benz Sydney allows funds to be directed to RPATI’s primary research and education goals and the minimizing of resource required for vehicle maintenance and administration. In addition the dealership has undertaken to promote transplant and organ donation awareness through its customer reach, ensuring that even more Australian’s understand the value of the essential work undertaken in the ongoing efforts to save lives.

According to Mercedes-Benz Sydney Dealer Principal, Susan Butler; “The continuation of the long standing support we have provided for RPATI is both very important and a clear indication of delivering on one of LSH Auto’s key values of social responsibility. The research conducted, once again, demonstrates the world-leading capability of Australia’s researchers. To continue such support is consistent with everything that both Mercedes-Benz and LSH Auto stand for.
