What is impact in medical research?
The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) exists to save lives. We do this by funding medical research and patient care that will go on to make a difference in the lives of the community. A lifesaving difference!
There are so many ways that the medical research we support, thanks to our kind donors and ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery, is making an impact.
OUR RESEARCH IS:
Generating new knowledge of diseases that spark new ideas for the development of lifesaving treatments and cures.
Turning research ideas into new products and services to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
Influencing policy to bring about change that will benefit patients and their loved ones.
Enabling new research through funding partnerships to speed up the discovery process.
Developing research capacity to ensure the best people and resources can drive research forward and continue to save lives for years to come.
You can help make an even bigger impact! For every $1 you donate, we provide over $4 in grants to research and patient care. This is because our administration costs are covered by our commercial business activities (such as our lottery program), which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year. You can feel proud knowing your donation makes an even bigger difference in your community!
