Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the Foundation funds innovative research to create better health outcomes for Tasmanians.

Since 1997, we have proudly provided more than $10.5 million to support research into cancer, cardiothoracic diseases, neurological conditions, premature babies and so much more. Every study funded is directly aimed at benefiting the health and wellbeing of our local community.

The Foundation grants funding to support pilot projects, as well as more substantial research projects that fosters cross-collaboration within the health and research system.

Each grant application is reviewed by the Foundation’s Scientific Research Advisory Committee, a multidisciplinary panel endorsed by the National Health and Medical Research Council. This Committee judges all applications on merit against a guiding set of principles and research priorities. Following advice from this Committee, the Foundation’s Board also reviews the projects and awards grant funding based on merit. It is a rigorous assessment process that ensures highly relevant projects continue to be supported.
