Medical Research

The Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation (WCH Foundation) understands the importance of vital health and medical research that translates to the highest quality healthcare for South Australians. From early intervention to promote health and prevent disease, to new and innovative ways of treating and managing disease, our research program contributes to improving the health and wellbeing of infants, children, young people, mothers and families in South Australia. By focusing on the youngest and most vulnerable populations, the WCH Foundation is working toward a brighter and healthier future for all.

Research Funding Opportunities

Each year, the WCH Foundation provides vital funding to health and medical research to benefit women, children and families through our Bloom Research Program and various other research funding opportunities.

The Bloom Research Program promotes big thinking for the health and wellbeing of South Australia’s little people and their mums by funding collaborative projects aligning with priority research areas. 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.
