The National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia strategically invests funds to support Australian medical research.
- The Metcalf Prizes for Stem Cell Research support promising scientists at the crucial mid-career stage.
- Our Matched Funding Program aims to help Australian stem cell researchers to fast-track potential therapies to clinical trials.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, the scientists we've supported are improving our understanding of and developing treatments for conditions including type 1 diabetes, leukaemia and other cancers, heart failure, multiple sclerosis, debilitating bone and cartilage disorders, inherited eye diseases, and more.
