SSMRF believes that funding medical research is the best way to develop better treatments for patients and improve healthcare for our community… and beyond.

The Foundation funds research across a wide range of medical disciplines, including cancer, mental health, women’s and children’s health, microbiome, bone & joint diseases, immunity, allergy & infection, obesity & metabolic diseases, intensive care & emergency medicine. Doctors, scientists, nurses and all allied health professionals from both St George & Sutherland hospitals can apply for research through our annual research grants program.

Both hospitals have a rich tradition of successful medical research that has positively impacted the lives of people in the local and wider communities.
