ForACURE Foundation funds projects that aim to translate stem cell research into future therapies with innovative treatment solutions that set the standard of care with the aim of helping patients live longer, better lives and also to help people envision the future of stem cell therapy.
Help us raise funds for new stem cell research projects into:
- Heart Disease
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Motor Neurone Disease
To date the Foundation has been focusing on awareness and developing a network of contacts both within Australia and overseas to establish a sound base for the organisation. In 2013 we will see the beginning of some exciting fundraising initiatives allowing us to commence the funding of this research.
We also support PhD students. The Foundation’s inaugural Grants Program will commence in early 2014 with funding for PhD students investigating novel therapies for cancer treatment.
The grants will be advertised via tertiary institutions and applications will be assessed by the Scientific Advisory Board.
The members of the Scientific Advisory Board include:
- Dr John Eden
Associate Professor, University of New South Wales
- Luigi Palombi
Academic at Australian National University
- Andrew Glen
Commercial Director Virgin Health Bank (Qatar)
