About the Foundation

About The Foundation

The Foundation for High Blood Pressure Research was established following the success of the International Symposium on Hypertension held in Melbourne in 1994. Under the chairmanship of Colin Johnston, the Foundation has generously supported Fellowships, Postdoctoral Awards and provided meeting support. The Foundation continues to support the HBPRCA annual scientific meetings and provides travel grants to support young investigators to attend the International Society of Hypertension meetings.

Early Career Transition Grants

Early Career Transition Grants

Although the Foundation is unable to support the Fellowship scheme presently, it has introduced the new Early Career Transition Grants, intended for early career researchers who need help in reestablishing their research as a result of change in physical location, direction of research or a major career interruption. Three or four of these awards valued up to $20,000 each are to be advertised annually.

Early Career Research Transition Grants 2020-2021

These new grants of up to $20,000 each are intended for early career researchers who need help in reestablishing their research as a result of change in physical location, direction of research or a major career interruption.

The closing date for application is Friday 8 November 2019.
