Support Our Research
Research is essential to improve clinical care for our mothers and their babies. In general research is poorly funded in Australia despite it being an essential step to ensure the future good health of our nation.
Our researchers are very successful in their research and in gaining support from national and international bodies. Nevertheless support is needed for local research projects in Western Sydney.
