Current Research

Charlies Foundation for Research is a proud supporter of the great work that happens at Sir Charles Gairdner and Osborne Park Hospitals.


In 2020/21 Charlies Foundation for Research is committed to providing over $1-million in funding for medical research in Western Australia.

Each year, we support a variety of research areas that contribute to patient care right here in WA. The research we support is called translational or patient-centred research, which means we fund projects and clinical trials with the most potential to improve care and outcomes for patients.

Our ‘seed funding’ strategy and vision has spawned remarkable advances in medical care that have made a huge difference for patients, both locally and globally.
