Audi Partnership Announcement

November 2021

Audi Foundation and Charlie Teo Foundation renew partnership to drive progress in brain cancer.

In September 2018 we announced our new multi-year partnership with the Audi Foundation. We are thrilled to announce that the Audi Foundation and the Charlie Teo Foundation have renewed our partnership. This represents an investment by the Audi Foundation of close to $1 million in our game-changing brain cancer research. Simply amazing!

“The Audi Foundation has great confidence in the pioneering and ground-breaking work of the Charlie Teo Foundation,” said Paul Sansom, Chairman of the Audi Foundation and Managing Director of Audi Australia.

“Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia, and as the cause of brain cancer is still unknown, we as an organisation understand how vital research into the disease is. We are delighted to be able to have supported the Charlie Teo Foundation since 2018 and are committed to continue to do so,” concluded Paul.

“The continuation of our successful partnership with the Audi Foundation brings hope to our brain cancer community at a time when it is truly needed,” said Dr Charlie Teo.

“Audi Foundation has put their trust and confidence in our progressive approach to funding brain cancer research, and to have their backing into the future is truly amazing. Audi and the Charlie Teo Foundation are equally pioneering in our respective fields. Our people think outside the box and are always looking for cutting-edge technology and ideas. Above all, our passion for what we both do fuels us. That’s why our partnership is so unique,” Dr Teo concluded.

Under our partnership to date, about half a million dollars has been invested in research like a world-first genomics, transcriptomics and velocity analysis of 100 high-grade brain cancer samples. This advanced technology is used to map and predict the journey of thousands of brain cancer cells at once, so we can treat the brain cancer.

Other partnership highlights include:

  • Our Founder presented at the Audi Australia Dealer of the Year Awards earlier this year
  • Conversations with Charlie hosted by Audi Centre Brisbane
  • Talented Audi staff generously volunteered for the Charlie Teo Foundation
