Through the generosity of our supporters, the Children’s Hospital Foundation funds research that has a strong focus on translational outcomes, improves children’s health and leads to faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries. With a focus on funding Queensland-based research, the Children’s Hospital Foundation funds research that supports Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service’s research strategy and themes.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation is proud to announce that the following Grant Rounds will open on 7 August 2017 and close at 5pm on 6 September 2017:

Woolworths Centre for Childhood Nutrition Research – Call for Applications

The Children’s Hospital Foundation in association with Woolworths are proudly offering $250,000 per annum for five years to establish the Woolworths Centre for Childhood Nutrition Research which is to be led by a Professor (Academic Level E) with suitable qualifications, experience and expertise in one or more nutrition-related disciplines.

To deliver a comprehensive nutrition research program, the Children’s Hospital Foundation will make available a further $750,000 per annum for five years to support the research activities conducted as part of the Woolworths Centre for Childhood Nutrition Research. Although the current grant round seeks only to appoint the Professor of Nutrition, the Research Advisory Committee will consider awarding all or part of the $750,000 for one or more years to the successful Professor of Nutrition should their application be deemed scientifically valid and feasible.
