The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) is thrilled to be supporting the world-class Clinical Trials Centre at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH)!

In October 2017, THRF proudly opened its own philanthropic hub at the RAH. Kickstarting our commitment to supporting translational medical research and patient care at the RAH, we have provided $1.6million in funding to allow for the construction and opening of the RAH’s own Clinical Trials Centre.

The Clinical Trials Centre will lead the way in research being undertaken in the lab that is translated into treatments that will benefit South Australians and we are thrilled to be supporting this facility dedicated to our mission – finding cures and improving care for South Australians as soon as possible.

Health Minister Peter Malinauskas says having the world-class Clinical Trials Centre allows South Australia to lead the way for healthcare.

“Having a world-class treatment centre in the heart of our health and biomedical precinct will improve health outcomes for all South Australians. It allows us to be at the forefront of healthcare, research, teaching and learning,” said Mr Malinauskas.

“I commend the hard work of the team behind the Clinical Trials Centre for making this important resource a reality.”

The Clinical Trials Centre is already running over 500 clinical trials for a wide range of illnesses and we are proud to be supporting cutting edge treatments that will potentially save the lives of your loved ones and South Australians who have suffered illnesses.

THRF Chief Executive Paul Flynn says supporting the Clinical Trials Centre will provide hope for South Australians living with life-threatening illnesses.

“Clinical trials mean that research has got to a point where it truly has potential to make an impact on a patient’s life and we are so excited to be involved in the world-class, lifesaving clinical trials that will be underway at the RAH,” said Mr Flynn.

“Our support of the Clinical Trials Centre is only possible because of the generosity of our donors as well as ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery and we thank them for their ongoing support.”

The support of the Clinical Trials Centre has been made possible by people like you – thank you for your support and we look forward to sharing with you promising research being undertaken at this world-class facility!
