The Hospital Research Foundation prides itself on allocating the generous donations received from our donors to the research projects in a transparent, fair and equitable fashion through our Research Review Committee.

Why have a Research Review Committee?

To increase the accountability of money spent and to ensure a transparent transfer of funds from The Hospital Research Foundation to researchers, THRF funding is gifted on a competitive application basis.  To ensure this application and review process is fair and equitable The Hospital Research Foundation has established a completely independent Research Review Committee (RRC).  This committee is comprised of esteemed Australian researchers.

The Committee will determine the best way to allocate the money donated by The Hospital Research Foundation to the researchers. This Research Review Committee system is vital as it allows money to be allocated on strong academic basis and scientific capability, and is an important step towards creating an impartial system that demonstrates consistency across all funding by The Hospital Research Foundation.
