The Claire Aldrich Legacy Fund.



The Claire Aldrich Legacy has been developed to support the research, education, and advocacy that Genetics Otago undertakes. Funds will support engagement programmes in schools that encourage students to consider a career in the world of human genetics.

Sally and Jeff's wish for the Claire Aldrich Legacy is to help inspire the young minds of New Zealand; the leaders of tomorrow. They want to connect with high school students to let them know that they can make a real difference in the world, that they can make life-changing discoveries. They want to share Claire's story with hope that it might plant that seed that could one day grow into ground-breaking findings.

With your support
A donation to the Claire Aldrich Legacy will help Genetics Otago to connect with future scientists to improve their understanding of, and interest in genetics. Your support will help to provide user-friendly information  and teaching resources, and to inspire the next generation of world class geneticists.

To honour Claire’s memory, a new specialised genetics teaching tool, The Claire Kit is being developed, and will contain a brand new set of electrophoresis equipment, large enough for a class of up to 30 students, as well as information for teachers along with paper and computer-based activities to complement the practical experiment.
