Supporting Medical Research Since 1963

Helping to find a cure

Over many years, our foundation has provided important funding for health and cancer research. This research has assisted greatly in the development of various cures and treatments. Through research, a greater understanding of diseases, their causes, detection, prevention and treatments has been developed.

Our research has been conducted in a variety of fields including Parkinson's disease, kidney disease, asthma, urodynamics, anti-venom, immunology, ophthalmology, toxicology, perinatal, schizophrenia, diabetes, skin cancer, cervical cancer, cord blood, in-vitro corneal transplant, adolescent cancer therapies, bone and joint disease and ovarian cancer.

Backed by a long history of supporting researchers in a variety of fields, we are committed to start-up funding for world-class medical research.
