Medical Research Foundation

Medical Research Foundation logoFor the past 35 years the Medical Research Foundation (MRF) has been improving our community’s health by funding the world-class medical research, ideas and innovations being undertaken at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH).

As a tertiary hospital, RPH’s longstanding reputation for delivering excellent educational and patient outcomes has made it a beacon for great researchers. In fact, our hospital’s hallowed halls have become a breeding ground for some of the world’s best medical minds, whose cutting-edge research and impressive clinical treatments continue to benefit the people of Perth – and around the world. The MRF recognises and celebrates their achievements, and is proud to contribute to RPH’s impressive track record of producing ground breaking research results that have real life benefits.

The MRF strives to build on its rich history of research funding through the delivery of strategic objectives:

  • Leadership: Leading a local research agenda that delivers positive health outcomes for WA, Australia and the world.
  • Nurturing Innovation: A go-to place where great ideas and people flourish.
  • Committing to Excellence: A commitment to excellence in all that we do and support.
  • Enabling Success: Facilitating and supporting world-class research by driving success.

By providing year-on-year funding and in-house facility support to researchers across a range of disciplines, the MRF has become a renowned beacon of hope - where exceptional thinking delivers exceptional outcomes.

In honour of the Medical Research Foundation’s 35th anniversary in 2018, the MRF will be hosting events and providing opportunities for you to learn more about its history and share in the ongoing journey of a beloved organisation that’s quietly worked behind the scenes to turn today’s research into tomorrow’s treatments.
