Auckland Medical Research Foundation
KNOWLEDGE GAINED THROUGH RESEARCH MEANS BETTER PATIENT CARE AND IMPROVED MEDICAL TREATMENTS
AMRF EXISTS FOR ONE PURPOSE: to improve the health of New Zealanders through funding the highest quality medical research. We believe that such research is vital to making genuine advances in patient care and medical treatments. But that research comes at a cost…
GROWING A SUSTAINABLE FUND
Funding for medical research in New Zealand is critical for our future health. In 1955 a group of Auckland medical and business leaders, united in their concerns about serious shortfalls in funding for medical research, came together to form the AMRF. From small beginnings, they grew a sustainable and enduring investment fund to provide research grants every year.
OUR COMMITMENT TO FUNDING EXCELLENCE
Our Medical Committee (comprised of clinical and biomedical scientists) appraises every request for funding and will consider applications from every field of modern medicine. Only the best applications meet our rigorous standards when assessing the medical and scientific importance of new research proposals.
SUPPORTING THE BEST NEW ZEALAND RESEARCH TALENT
AMRF have supported many successful scientists in New Zealand including Prof Sir Peter Gluckman, Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes and Prof Sir Graham Liggins. Through our funding, we help to establish and retain our best emerging talent, repatriate key researchers and build capability in the New Zealand research community.
YOUR DONATION IS APPLIED ONLY TO MEDICAL RESEARCH
We apply 100% of donations, bequests, legacies and income from investments to medical research. Our operating expenses are met by a separate charitable fund. So if you donate to the AMRF, you can be assured that every cent of your donation is applied to advancing the highest quality medical research.
