Spinnaker Health Research Foundation Grant Summary

Spinnaker Health Research Foundation is committed to the support of research for the direct benefit of the community of south metropolitan Perth that can also demonstrate local, national and global leadership. Established in 1996 at Fremantle Hospital the Foundation has funded almost $4,000,000 in research at Fremantle Hospital, Fiona Stanley Hospital and at universities and institutes with a direct link to our community.

Our grant-making strategy is focused on improving the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients in the hospitals we support and the prevention of disease for improved community health.  At Spinnaker we strive to:

  • Support research that responds to the identified needs of the south metropolitan community of Perth, Western Australia
  • Support and inspire research with demonstrable translation to clinical practice
  • Improve patient outcomes across all areas of disease and injury
  • Support research for the prevention of chronic health conditions
  • Provide opportunities for the translation of knowledge for the benefit of all members of the community

GRANTS

A commitment to capacity building, research collaboration and the translation of research to both knowledge and practice underpins the ethos of Spinnaker Health Research Foundation. Spinnaker grants aim to assist researchers in becoming more competitive for national and international funding and since 1996 the grants we have awarded have been leveraged to achieve a further $20,000,000 in project funding.

There are two grant pools offered, Early Career Research and Seed Grants, with multiple grants awarded in each category to a maximum of $20,000 each.  In exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the Board of Trustee Directors of Spinnaker Health Research Foundation, and upon advice of the Scientific Advisory Committee, projects of a higher value may be considered. 

In addition to the two grant pools offered are three additional grants this year; The Edith Cowan University Spinnaker Explorers Grant, The Janine Chalwell Gift Grant and The Janine Chalwell Innovation Grant, providing further opportunity for research, knowledge and making an impact to better healthcare.


Please find below all grant expressions of interest for you to download, complete and return by Tuesday 28th of June.


POOL A- $20,000

Early Career Research grants are offered to encourage people at the beginning of their career to undertake a research project for the benefit of prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of health conditions

Building on the strong collaboration between Spinnaker and universities, a new partnership with The University of Notre Dame of Australia will provide funding for two research projects where the lead researcher can use their research project as the basis for a Master of Philosophy research degree.  This fee free degree provides formal, online training that will develop knowledge and skills in research, provides a pathway for subsequent enrolment in a PhD, and is recognised by most Australian medical colleges. During their study period, the candidate will have an experienced academic researcher join their research team and guide them through to the completion of their degree.  They will also have access to the quantitative and qualitative biostatisticians working within the Institute for Health Research at Notre Dame (Fremantle).

Further details can be obtained from Professor Jim Codde, Director of the Institute for Health Research at UNDA, or Professor Gerard Hoyne, Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery and Health Science, UNDA.
