Medical Research

The Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation invests in evidence-based research aiming to improve the health of pregnant women, babies and children. Our commitment to research greatly enhances the capacity of the Women’s and Children’s Health Network to deliver faster diagnosis, earlier intervention, new treatments and improvements to care for South Australia’s women and children.

Research Funding Opportunities

Each year, we provide vital funding to health and medical research through the Bloom Research Program. The program promotes big thinking for the health and wellbeing of South Australia’s little people and their mums, funding projects aligning with priority research areas. At the heart of the Bloom Research Program is collaboration and uniting like-minded researchers with common goals to create greater possibilities for research outcomes. The WCH Foundation also provides funds in the form of scholarships, fellowships, and various specific-purpose projects and research funding.

See our Research Funding Opportunities page for information about current and upcoming opportunities.
