Early Career Medical Research Grants Awarded

At SSMRF’s End of Year Celebration Dinner, three Early Career Medical Research Grants were awarded to Dr Jessica Dawson, Dr Brendan Smyth, and Dr Richard Sullivan.  

Dr Dawson’s project is to study Zinc supplementation to reduce anorexia in people with kidney failure receiving conservative kidney management.  

Dr Smyth’s project is the systematic evaluation of interventions for symptom management in chronic kidney disease using Cannabidiol.  

Dr Sullivan’s project is to investigate point of care antibiotic allergy assessment and intervention. 

SSMRF CEO Pam Brown said “it is wonderful to see the money that we raise through the Foundation go towards such deserving medical research projects in our local hospitals. We wish that we could fund more projects and we encourage our community to support our Christmas Giving Appeal. At this time of the year, it is important to consider donating to worthy causes like life-changing medical research that improves the health and wellbeing of local families.”
