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.
To ensure we support the best of the best projects, each grant application is rigorously evaluated by external assessors and an independent scientific committee, comprising experienced doctors and academics from both within and outside the St Vincent’s campus.
We have awarded over 400 grants since 1992, totalling in over $17 million, to fund medical breakthroughs. Here are some examples of healthcare trailblazers we support.
