How We Help
How we help
For more than three decades, the PA Research Foundation has been supporting solutions to improve the health of people globally – solutions such as the world’s first cancer vaccine, Gardasil.
As the philanthropic arm of the Princess Alexandra Hospital Campus (Queensland’s leading research hospital and largest clinical trials center), the PA Research Foundation has a long history of funding ‘world class’ research into deadly and debilitating disease ranging from cancer, heart disease and diabetes, to liver disease, arthritis and kidney/renal disease.
Our home, the PA Hospital Campus, is one of the Southern Hemisphere’s leading precincts for medical discoveries housing Australia’s most advanced research facility, the Translational Research Institute (TRI) as well as a new clinical research facility to conduct research on human subjects within the main hospital building. Additionally, co-located is Australia’s first major mammalian biopharmaceutical production facility, Patheon Biologics.
Everyday countless Australian lives of both the young and old are lost to serious health conditions, many of which could be prevented by early diagnosis, better health care and treatment alternatives. At the PA Research Foundation we are driven by this and are solely focused on saving lives and creating a healthy world for all – by working hand in hand with the community to create opportunities to bring amazing health and medical breakthroughs to life. Your support is vital in helping us achieve this.
Join us for #7daysforSmiddy and the fight against skin cancer. Every dollar your raise will be used in the fight against skin cancer and in memory of Adam Smiddy during Skin Cancer Action week, Nov 21-27.
