National Foundation for Medical Research & Innovation
The National Foundation for Medical Research and Innovation is a not-for-profit organisation that is entirely independent. It is not affiliated with any university, hospital, government or state body.
Our mission is "to advance innovations in medical research related to the nature, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and incidence of disease and other health problems that have a significant impact on the health of humans"
HELP US DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT:
Whilst Australian researchers rank highly on international measures of research quality, our ability to translate research into medical innovations and form collaborations ranks far below its potential.
Opportunities to test and develop new drugs, vaccines, diagnostics and devices can be advanced through philanthropic support.
With your help, NFMRI supports efficiencies, advances innovations and facilitates collaborations.
Historically, funding of medical research in Australia has been determined by outputs – research papers, citations and validated by scientific peer review.
Whilst these factors are important; the advancement of innovation, the formation of collaborations and the ability to deliver impact are the outcomes NFMRI's funding delivers.
To maximise our impact, NFMRI focuses on advancing innovation. By looking outwards and supporting the gaps along the innovation pathway applying resources, networks and knowledge, NFMRI helps you make a difference.
NFMRI supports medical research in three key gap areas we call social investment portfolios.
By supporting NFMRI and its activities, you are truly making a difference and paving the way for a more innovative and healthier community.
