Endometriosis Australia is the largest non-government funder of research into endometriosis.
The Endometriosis Australia Research Grant Program was launched in 2017 and has distributed over $600,000 in grants towards seed funded research benefiting the endometriosis community. We are grateful for the gift of philanthropy through the Eden Foundation.
Your input into our Endometriosis Australia national survey has established the research priorities of Australians affected by endometriosis. See the findings here.
We will be assessing applications for Endometriosis Australia Research Grants against these criterions. Please register for updates.
Our impact is evidenced by, for example, Imagendo and our seed funding supported the groundbreaking findings by Prof Caroline Ford and our co-founder Prof Jason Abbott, and the team at Royal Women’s Hospital. Researchers have successfully grown tissue from all known types of endometriosis in a lab and observed the changes in the cells after different treatments.
