Medical Research Foundation

Yesterday's medical research projects have become today's treatments and cures.

Teaching hospitals are the State’s major resource for research activities and need to explore better methods of maintaining health and preventing and treating disease in the community.

The Royal Perth Hospital Medical Research Foundation (MRF) supports research projects that are conducted principally at our hospital, maintaining our position as a premier national resource centre for basic and clinical research.

Quality research is an essential component in the delivery of excellent patient care. It attracts fine minds and also fosters an environment of innovation and improvement in the practice of health care.

MRF grants are a vital link to an immense untapped resource. We provide seed money for younger researchers and innovative projects in our hospital, acting as a catalyst in the on-going development of medical research. We also provide vital and substantial infrastructure support (such as research laboratories) for our hospital campus.

Our aim is to provide funds strategically, to best serve medical research and the community at large, supporting research projects that have the potential to develop and stand alone in the future.
