Medical Research Foundation

Research for a healthier tomorrow

The Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation (external site) began in 1996 to support and encourage medical research at Fremantle Hospital.

It is an independent charitable trust and comprises six trustees who are also prominent Fremantle business people. Supporting the trustees are groups of professionals who also donate their time. These professionals include a scientific advisory committee comprised of elite medical professionals, a strategic planning committee and a dedicated team of volunteers. A small office staff is located at Fremantle Hospital.

The Foundation receives no direct government funding and relies upon the generosity of the local community and businesses and its own fundraising endeavors.

The Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation offers three means of support to Fremantle Hospital-based researchers: the annual Fremantle Hospital Research Awards, the Barry Marshall Travel Award, and the Warren Jones Awards.
