Why you should choose Spinnaker as your reason

We fund research across ALL disease and injury areas depending on where it’s needed most!

We only fund research that can be translated to practice to improve the care, treatment and diagnosis of patients in WA.

Despite being the dedicated medical research foundation for four of WA’s major hospitals, we receive no government funding.

We have a long history of funding world-class medical discoveries in areas including:

  • Maternal and infant health
  • Childhood disease and injury
  • Endocrine disorders including diabetes
  • Cancer and cancer treatments
  • Burn management and treatment
  • Inflammatory and rare diseases
  • Mental health
  • Heart disease
  • Heart and lung transplant
