The Spinnaker Health Research Foundation (formerly known as Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation) began life in 1996 to support and promote medical research at Fremantle Hospital. Since late 2016, the scope has broadened and reaches across the whole Fiona Stanley Fremantle Hospital Group as well as the South Metropolitan Region.

Supporting the Trustee Directors are groups of professionals who also give their time and expertise voluntarily, including a Scientific Advisory Committee comprised of esteemed medical professionals and scientists; a Finance and Governance Committee comprising of financial and legal professionals; a Marketing Committee including successful and experienced business owners and a small office of staff located at Fremantle Hospital and soon also at Fiona Stanley Hospital.

The Foundation has received no direct Federal or State government funding, relying entirely upon the generosity of people like you, the local community and businesses.

The Spinnaker Health Research Foundation offers various means of support to any area of medical and community health issues which have relativity to the South Metropolitan community. These include the annual Spinnaker Research Grants, PhD Scholarships, the Barry Marshall Travel Grant(s), Collaboration Awards and occasional equipment grants.
