About Van Leeuwenhoeck Institute:

Van Leeuwenhoeck Institute (VLI) provides institutional investors and other professional investors with independent, un-biased research on the real value of innovative Life Sciences companies. Many institutional and individual investors will not invest in companies lacking independent third-party research coverage, yet few investment banks cover this sector because it requires dedicated expertise.

In spite of the lack of quality knowledge on an industry-wide basis, there is increased demand for life science-specific market research as investors are seeking information about leading companies in the sector in order to make well-informed investment decisions.

Immuron Limited has engaged VLI to provide the Company with logistical support services in support of potential European road shows.
