Introducing the Marsden Fund 25 Series
This year, the Marsden Fund celebrates 25 years of excellent research through regional lectures, online profiles and video interviews. Of the different disciplines being showcased, are speakers on paleopathology, bioarchaeology and ancient DNA.

Marsden Fund Te Pūtea Rangahau a Marsden was established by the New Zealand government in 1994. Since then, it has driven world-class research in New Zealand by supporting and incentivising excellent researchers to work on their best and boldest ideas, to connect internationally, leading to new knowledge and skills with the potential for significant downstream impact for Aotearoa.

To celebrate, the Marsden Fund 25 Series shines a light on 25 researchers to reflect on the depth and breadth of research excellence making a difference across the disciplines supported by this funding. Over coming months, there will be 15 regional public lectures and 10 online profiles to explore.

The lectures are free to the public with preregistration.
