SSMRF March News

“Blood clots affect every family…”Freda 1

I’m studying the building blocks of patient blood signatures. My vision is to help people who are prone to clots, and prevent them.” – Dr Freda Passam (2016 SSMRF Grant Recipient) speaking recently at our Give Back Business Leaders event.

This year, SSMRF is asking businesses to come together & make an impact in our hospitals through medical research.

Please donate to medical research happening in AustraliaDonate

As Dr Passam mentioned at our recent business networking event, medical research funding in Australia is very low:

This year, if the St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation didn’t fund my research, I would have to stop. $50,000 is the minimum standard for a research project to be funded for a year.

So please, donate to SSMRF today.
