General Neurosurgical Research and Paediatric Neurosurgical Research

The NeuroSurgical Research Foundation (NRF) supports research following its inception by Dr Trevor Dinning and Professor Donald Simpson in 1963. The mission of the Foundation is to promote, foster, develop and assist the study of all matters related to neurosurgery by encouraging, stimulating and aiding research and investigation, engaging public interest and cooperation with other research organisations.

This funding seeks to support research into head injury, intracranial haemorrhage, neurodegeneration, sciatica, spinal cord injury, stroke and brain tumours. The NHMRC scoring system is used to assess research donations.

  • General neurosurgical research up to the value of $50,000 for neurosurgical projects in SA.
  • Paediatric neurosurgical research up to the value of $50,000 and must include an Interstate or Overseas collaboration.
