Established in 2019 by Dr Ivan (David) Perel who received his medical degree from The University of Queensland as did his three children. He, along with his late wife Margaret, has given philanthropically through UQ since 2001. Trained in both haematology and pathology, upon his retirement  Dr Perel shared his skills and appreciation of medical history with UQ’s Faculty of Medicine through his extensive volunteer work with the Marks-Hirschfeld Museum of Medical History.
