  • Translational Grants of $250,000
  • Project Grants of $140,000
  • Development Grants of $150,000
  • Postgraduate Scholarships ($32,000 for up to three years)

With the aim of ensuring that the highest quality and globally competitive researchers are funded, all applications will be assessed by our independent research panel and the highest quality applications will be awarded.

Expressions of Interest applications will close at 12.00 PM on Wednesday May 9 2018. Short-listed applicants may be required to present more information to THRF’s independent review committee.

“We were extremely impressed in the quality of applications in our inaugural grant round at the RAH last year and are absolutely thrilled to offer another exciting opportunity to clinicians and researchers at different stages in their careers,” said THRF CEO Paul Flynn.

“Working with our independent panel, we will be providing the funds to the best research applications from clinicians and researchers from Adelaide’s BioMed Precinct, who have an affiliation with the RAH or SA Pathology (within the Central Adelaide Local Health Network) and demonstrate the most potential to make an impact in the community.

“This record amount of funding is only possible thanks to the kind support of our donors and ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery.”
