RPH Imaging Research Fund

In the late 1990s, Professor Michael Lawrence-Brown, Vascular Surgeon, and Mr David Hartley, Medical Imaging Technologist, developed an abdominal aortic stent graft while employed at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH). The royalties from this device sit under the governance of the East Metropolitan Health Service (EMHS) and are administered through a steering committee.

In 2015, Cabinet approved the use of these royalties for the establishment of two Professorial Chairs of Vascular Surgery and Radiology. In addition to supporting the Chair positions, the steering committee has endorsed the provision of a funding budget to be allocated for research grants across both Vascular Surgery and Radiology. This established the RPH Imaging Research Fund.
