Wellington Medical Researchers invited to apply for grants

Wellington Medical Researchers invited to apply for Research and Travel Grants

Research For Life invites Wellington-based medical researchers to apply for research and travel grants. The closing date for the next round of applications is Friday, 22 March 2019.

Last year, Research For Life made 11 research grants and 10 travel grants worth $203,698 in total.

Established in 1960, Research For Life funds innovative quality research undertaken by researchers in the early stages of their careers who, through their work, will advance the quality of healthcare in the Wellington region and beyond.

Grants for research may be awarded to medical or non-medical researchers whose applications satisfy the requirements of the Board.

Research For Life chairman Dr Lance Lawler said, “We’re particularly interested in supporting and encouraging young, talented people engaged in medical and biomedical research.”

Research For Life is currently funding recipients undertaking research from a number of Wellington institutions including the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research, Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Biological Sciences, the University of Otago’s Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Massey University Wellington and ESR (The Institute of Environmental Science and Research).

“We have funded work in many areas including research into cancer, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, diabetes and obesity, multiple sclerosis, stroke therapy and conditions of particular concern in the Wellington region, such as asthma. This research is vital to achieving continuing improvements in health outcomes in the community.”
