The Foundation realises that research is closely associated with increasing knowledge and therefore, education, not only for those involved at the interface in conducting research, but more importantly, for the recipients of results of that research.

It is for these reasons that we are committed to supporting developments and advances in the field of research in order to create greater understanding of the causes, prevention, treatment and control of diseases. The insight gained through research allows further health promotion initiatives to be developed which enhance and promote the positive results of that research.

We are currently supporting the following research, if you would like to donate to our research programs please phone Wendy on (02) 9382 4291.
