ANZCA Research Foundation

The foundation dedicates more than $A1.5 million to medical research each year; supports our Indigenous health and overseas aid activities; and raises the profile of college-supported research. 

Research funding in Australia and New Zealand in the areas of anaesthesia, pain and perioperative medicine is among the lowest of all medical specialties. 

In the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have established the ANZCA Research Foundation COVID-19 research fund to support research aiming to help protect specialists and other healthcare workers and patients from COVID-19.

Many foundation-supported studies have led to large peer-reviewed funding grants for ANZCA Clinical Trials Network endorsed multi-centre clinical trials, improving evidence-based clinical practice worldwide.
