The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) is proud to announce expressions of interest are now open for our inaugural grant round at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
Two $250,000 Translational Grants that are ready to commence immediately are available to researchers and clinicians affiliated with the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH). Applications will close at 12.00 PM on the 15th December 2017 and short-listed applicants may be required to present more information to THRF’s independent review committee.
THRF has been supporting The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research for over 50 years and is now proud to extend its support more broadly across South Australia to include the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Centre for Cancer Biology. Our initial support included $1.6million in funding to support the RAH’s own Clinical Trials Centre and $1.1million for world-class cancer research at the Centre for Cancer Biology.
We have also been pleased to support renal research at the RAH, with $1.2million in grants over the past few years and the establishment of our affiliate brand, Kidney, Transplant and Diabetes Research Australia. This includes a recent announcement of $330,000 in funding to ensure six more pancreatic islet auto-transplants can take place at the RAH, saving the lives of people living with severe and hereditary pancreatitis. THRF also proudly supports crucial stroke research at the RAH with the upcoming launch of Cure for Stroke Australia. Both of these affiliate brands will operate out of the RAH.
In October 2017, we opened our own philanthropic hub in the Royal Adelaide Hospital and you can find us on Level 3 (Ground Floor) just opposite the food court. Come and see us to find out more about THRF, its affiliate brands and how we’re committed to helping you save lives and improve care in your hospital!
