To ensure today’s research is tomorrow’s cure
Lions Medical Research Foundation is committed to start-up funding for world-class medical research
As a community based, not for profit organisation, Lions Medical Research Foundation
Adheres to the code of ethics of Lions Clubs International,
Embraces our constituent members – the Lions Clubs of Queensland and Northern New South Wales – and the broader Lions community which includes Lioness and Leo Clubs,
Supports sustainable growth to secure funding into the future, and
Commits to working with the medical research community to ensure viable and continuous programs.
Lions Medical Research Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, all of whom are Lions members and participating in a voluntary capacity. The Board has up to eight Directors, all elected from the Lions Districts within Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Board members receive no remuneration.
Lions Medical Research Foundation receives no Government funding, and funds are sourced by donations, bequests, investments and awards such as the Ray Phippard Fellow Award and Professor Ian Frazer Humanitarian Award. The Foundation is supported by Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs and the greater community, and funds raised support panel-approved early career medical scientists in their quest to build a team of medical researchers who work tirelessly to develop cures and treatments in their areas of research. These chosen Research Fellows are presently based in Brisbane at the University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
