Kidney Health Australia is pleased to inform our stakeholders interested in kidney research that we will be conducting a review of our future research grant system in the first half of 2015. During this process we will be consulting widely with current major kidney research groups, individuals and others interested in kidney related medical and science research.

Kidney Health Australia Medical Research Funding Schedule for 2015>
Please refer to our long history of medical research funding in the schedules listed bottom of this page.

The current process that invites applications for project grants and scholarships has been suspended and will be replaced by new arrangements.
Read Kidney Health Australia's formal advice letter>

The Kidney Health Australia Board has endorsed this process to ensure we continue to support the most significant Australia wide research opportunities in future years. Kidney Health Australia’s long standing commitment to research funding continues unchanged, with an important part of the new approach being to explore ways to significantly expand the current level of funding.

As this work is undertaken we will keep all stakeholders interested in kidney research and potential future grant applicants, informed of our review process and plans.

Later in 2015 we will announce details of our Australian Kidney Research Foundation, which will be coordinating delivery of our kidney research agenda.

This report showcases cutting edge research funded by Kidney Health Australia across its history since first registered in 1968.

As a major funder of kidney research outside National Health & Medical Research Council, our research has underpinned the evidence base that drives health policy and strategic development for the advancement of the public health agenda from a kidney perspective. Australia’s kidney research agenda has been crucial to:

  • long term improvement of health outcomes for those with, or at risk of kidney disease.
  • development of State and Federal Government kidney related health policy.
  • building Australia’s evidence base to drive and underpin accessible and equitable service.

Bootle Award Research 2003 to 2010
Kidney Health Australia established the Bootle Award Medical Research Grant, using a $1 million dollar bequest from Estate of Miss Elizabeth Bootle dedicated to research in nephrology. Our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee recommended the Bootle Bequest be used for developing and securing the academic career of Australian scientists or medical graduates in nephrology. Institutions matched funds awarded effectively doubling these funds. Wise management by Kidney Health Australia of this generous bequest injected over $5,000,000 into kidney research!
