Our research

St Vincent’s Clinic Foundation provides funding and support for medical research across St Vincent’s Darlinghurst campus, with a focus on advancing patient care. We passionately believe that high-quality research underpins high-quality clinical care. 

The St Vincent’s Clinic Foundation grants aim to:

  • Support clinical excellence through research
  • Give clinicians the opportunity to participate in research programs
  • Provide research funding to emerging researchers
  • Act as a kick-starter for researchers to develop programmes, gather data and enable eligibility for external grants, such as NHMRC grants and government grants

We champion people forging the future of medicine
