The St Vincent’s Clinic Foundation COVID-19 Research grant will champion one or several research projects across the St Vincent’s campus in Sydney. The funding will enable clinicians and researchers to carry out research work focused on any current or future issues related to COVID-19. The scope of the grant, deliberately broad, aims to support research into any aspect of the testing for, patient treatment of or elimination of the COVID-19 virus and includes, without limitation, projects aimed at examining the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on patient care, families, clinical staff, hospital facilities and our St Vincent’s healthcare systems responding to COVID-19.
St Vincent’s has a long and proud history of dealing with virus outbreaks. It started in 1844, when the Sisters of Charity (who later founded St Vincent’s Hospital) assisted families during the then influenza epidemic. Over a century later, St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney led the way in HIV/AIDS care, opening the first dedicated HIV/AIDS ward in Australia in 1984, and has since become a centre of excellence in the diagnosis and compassionate care of those living with HIV.
Since its creation in 1992, St Vincent’s Clinic Foundation has awarded over 400 grants to support uncharted medical research across the St Vincent’s Darlinghurst campus, which comprises leading healthcare and research organisations.
