Supporting excellence in medical research for over 60 years

Established in 1957, the Raine Medical Research Foundation has supported over 500 scientists to carry out important research into human diseases and disorders, for the benefit of all in the community.

It is true to say that, if not today or even tomorrow, certainly at some time in the future, each and every West Australian will benefit in some way from the generous legacy Mary Raine left to this State. – Meg Sangster, The Mary Raine Story

Through the generosity and vision of Mary Raine, the Raine Medical Research Foundation has been able to support cutting-edge research that has investigated some of the most challenging diseases and disorders facing the world today – including cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, renal failure and cardiovascular disease. The Foundation has allocated close to $50mill towards medical research to-date in support of two Centres of Excellence, major research grants, fellowships, scholarships, collaboration awards, publication prizes, and the visits of international scholars. Our funding programs have been further enhanced through many productive partnerships and joint ventures, and generous bequests and donations from the community.

The Raine Foundation has a strong reputation for ensuring thorough and equitable grant review processes and prides itself on supporting medical research excellence. Importantly, our funding strategy recognises the need to support the next generation of WA medical research leaders. The achievements of our previous awardees are a testament to the rigour of our grant review processes and reinforce the critical need for early-career support.
