Our research

Here at the Royal Hobart Hospital Research Foundation, we’re committed to advancing medical research in Tasmania. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we bring together researchers from across the state to improve the healthcare and outcomes for Tasmanians.

We proudly invest in research projects that has a direct impact on our community, providing more than $10 million in funding since we started back in 1997. We also make a point of investing in new researchers, to give them the seed funding required to kick-start their projects and grow research capabilities in our state.

Each year we allocate funding through an annual grant program. Applications are reviewed by the Foundation’s Scientific Research Advisory Committee, before they are endorsed by the Foundation Board. We have a comprehensive Research Funding Strategy, which outlines the process in more detail here.
